1509, Wakufuru Bench, 2017
A blond wood bench with an upholstered seat absorbs sound. Johan Kauppi designed the Wakufuru bench to be quiet both visually and acoustically. Produced by Glimakra, each bench has three layers of sound-absorbing material beneath the top surface. An air gap further dampens the sound.
