Managing office acoustics isn’t simple. That’s why we have been supporting our clients in creating an optimal workspace for a long time.
When we launched Hush Pads panels on the market we believed that our solution will make office acoustics much better. We were right. Innovation and safety combined with diverse applications and outstanding design decided on the success of Hush Pads panels.
Acoustics + Design + Functionality
Very good acoustic properties were confirmed during laboratory tests performed according to norms ISO 354:2005 and ISO 11654:1997. As result sound absorption indicator αw = 0.85 means that 85% of all sound waves are absorbed by each Hush Pad panel.
Fire safety is confirmed by accredited laboratory which performed tests indicating European fire classification for building materials. Hush Pads panels were granted classification B-s2-d0. This result informs that Hush Pads are a flame retardant product and can be safely used indoors as a panel covering walls or hinged from the ceiling.
Divers applications and great designs are best shown by our projects. Despite a short period of time on the market, Hush Pads helped to change acoustic of various offices in Poland and abroad.

Clerkenwell is a part of London where such extraordinary people as Oliver Cromwell, Charles Dickens or Lenin lived in the past. The unique atmosphere of this place which was occupied for years by printing companies, architecture studios and pubs and cafes full of artists made Clerkenwell Design Week a very special design festival. The vibe of Clerkenwell streets was incorporated into the CDW program which is focused on exchanging ideas, meeting new people and friends in a very casual way.
During this edition of Clerkenwell Design Week visitors could see 82 showrooms form the most renown office furniture manufacturers and designers in the world. Compared to the last year it was an increase of over 20 showrooms. The satellite events were also more spectacular and included: design icons, design factory and fringe. Fringe is a variety of Clerkenwell’s architecture and design studios. This year visitors had a chance to see Zaha Hadid’s works.

The FURNIKO UK team put a lot of afford to meet the expectations of the architects and designers visiting Clerkenwell Design Week. Specially for this occasion the whole showroom has been refurbished and made over. The program prepared by FURNIKO UK focused on different products each day of CDW. ASTERO executive furniture collection had its premiere on British market. The only exposition that didn’t change was a composition made of Hush Pads acoustic panels covering a whole wall.
