These lights have noise reduction properties to create a cozy atmosphere

As more and more companies invest in the health and wellbeing of their employees, designers are looking for products that contribute to a safe and comfortable work environment. Lights that also have sound absorbing features contribute tremendously to a space’s comfort–whether it be a workplace or a restaurant.

Lights with acoustic panels are ideal for workspaces because they help keep noise levels down–especially in the ever popular open-concept offices where it can often be hard to find a quiet, private space for phone calls or focused work.

These lights are equally useful for restaurant and hospitality spaces, which are notorious for being too loud. By incorporating decorative pendants that feature felt panels or sound absorbing fabrics, restauranteurs can keep noise levels down and create the cozy intimate atmosphere that keeps diners comfortable.

Check out some sound absorbing lights on our website. Here are some of our favourites:
