Akunok

A secluded nook for peace, reflection, and rest.
Design by: Maja Ganszyniec

The new acoustic furniture concept by Abstracta and designer Maja Ganszyniec ambitiously tackles two of the biggest challenges facing many of today’s workplaces. The first is to create better soundscapes that promote well-being and job satisfaction. The second is to offer employees secluded, quiet smaller areas where they can focus on their work in comfort, either alone or in small groups.

The generously deep, highback acoustic seat is a secluded space unto itself in dynamic environments.

Both high and low frequencies can be effectively addressed thanks to the deep seat and well-balanced side and back panels. The excellent sound-absorbing properties of Akunoks are established in Acoustic facts' independent quality tests.

“It isn’t just the sound-absorbing material inside the seats that dampens sound. Akunok’s corners and voids also act as sound traps.” - Designer Maja Ganszyniec

  • The highback Akunok acoustic seat features pocket springs for maximum comfort. By incorporating pocket springs for seating support, Akunok not only achieves superior comfort compared to the use of large volumes of polyurethane foam but also ensures long-lasting comfort while significantly minimizing material usage.

  • The Akunok series includes two handy and versatile tables, one round and one oval, suitable for a laptop. Both table tops are made of oak. A clever base with two tubular steel legs lets users pull the table forward so the table top slightly overlaps the seat cushion. Its base is available in several colours.

  • The space created between the two screens acts as a sound trap. The self-supporting floor screen lacks any protruding legs that impede furniture arrangement.
