We invite you to experience the world of BuzziSpace at Orgatec 2018. Discover how we work and think differently, and the philosophy that has been fueling our 10-year journey, Happy and Healthy Workspaces.

At this year’s Orgatec, we take our portfolio to new heights and address the importance of sound, light, and nature on human experience at work. Inspired by ecology, we dive into the concept of microenvironments to create happy, healthy workspaces that answer the differing demands within a working environment while balancing sound, light, and air.

The power of good acoustics

Many people work and live in open spaces which offer a high degree of flexibility and better possibilities for collaboration. However, this model may pose different challenges concerning privacy and concentration. This is where acoustics play an important role in the workspace. Sound and environmental noise need to be perfectly balanced with the office setting as both impact employees’ productivity and wellbeing.

At Orgatec, we created two acoustic rooms where visitors could experience the impact of noise-reducing solutions in a space. Watch the video below to hear the difference between good and poor acoustics.

A microenvironment for every need

Within a workspace, we consider microenvironments as small, distinct zones separated from their nearby environments by a variety of characteristics such as level of privacy, lighting, type of seating and workstation. There are several ways to create such microenvironments in your space—especially with the new solutions, including BuzziBracks and BuzziSpark.

Discover these two new launches along with several others in a range of inspirational settings to work, focus, relax, lounge or meet as you navigate from one environment to the other.

Walk in light and silence

The spaces in which we live and work should be places where we thrive. However, there are often several factors that negatively impact our well-being and happiness. These factors are poor sound control and light. Many rooms that need acoustic treatment also need better lighting. Just because a space is already equipped, doesn’t mean there are no opportunities to have a sound-treated room.

With our solid expertise in acoustics, our noise-reducing lighting portfolio accommodates the demand for both sound absorption and light. At Orgatec 2018, we’re presenting our multi-faceted acoustic lighting portfolio, each solution carefully engineered to pair quality light and effective sound-absorption—two key factors for creating a well-balanced space.

How do acoustics contribute to happier and healthier workspaces?

Each day during the fair, Daniel Verlooven, our very own global acoustic ambassador and expert gave 25-minute engaging sessions about the importance of acoustics in creating happy, healthy workspaces.

In these sessions, Daniel talked about why sound is so important to us from an evolutionary perspective and how we as manufacturers, space planners, architects, and end-customers can contribute to employee well-being by considering acoustics.
