If you're an architect, interior designer, or even just a person who's interested in architecture and design, you've probably heard the term "reverberation time." But what is it? And why should you care? Reverberation time is a term used to describe the amount of time that it takes for sound waves to decay in a space. It's measured in seconds—the longer it takes for the sound to die out, the larger your space needs to be to accommodate for those longer reverberation times.

Noise pollution in public spaces can feel like a necessary evil. From someone chatting in the hallway outside your cubicle to the hum of traffic from the street outside, unwanted sounds are really all around.

For many educational establishments, finding the physical space or the finance to dedicate resources to neuro divergent pupils has been difficult. But smart sensory furniture solutions are changing the picture. If they didn’t know it already, educational decision-makers are quickly realizing that physical space is at a premium as they juggle desks and equipment to meet social-distancing guidelines. Every square-foot of space is being adapted and used, making the very idea of rooms dedicated to just one function – such as a sensory room – suddenly seem very outdated. So – how to ensure provisio ..read more

Research shows that there are only 2-4 people involved in 73% of meetings. Opting for office booths instead of built rooms can save ..read more

Scandinavian Spaces: A Review Of The Modern Movement In Interior Design
Brass Tacks Design Blog
by Carolyn Turner
1y ago
The Nordic name for the minimalist and functional style that became popular in the late 1950s and 1960s is "Scandinavian Modern." This style was a reaction to the excesses of mid-century modern. Instead of overstuffed furniture, Scandinavian designers opted for sleek simplicity. Instead of ornate patterns, they preferred clean lines. And while the rest of the world still debates the definition of wellness in the workplace, at Scandinavian Spaces our philosophies are a decade ahead of the health and wellness movement. As a family-owned company we push the boundaries of expected design to prov ..read more
