Silent Tree, serves as a supporting element in the environment and can be used to divide the space and improve the acoustics in public spaces and meeting venues. “I’ve always been inspired by Trees. For this design, the concept was to move naturally, symbolically into the living space to create a functional, warm and supporting environment,” says Katrín Ólína. Silent Tree can stand on its own, or in a group. It can form a small forest to meet the need for peace and quiet.
