Seen but not heard: noise-absorbing lighting
Lighting is extremely important to an office – or any facility – and its ergonomics. (FM has had very interesting conversations with Humanscale’s lighting expert Tim Goodread, which you can watch here.)
ISM Objects manufactures and designs domestic and commercial lighting, and innovation is at the heart of its approach to lighting design. Its latest collection, Teamwork, showcases how a well-resolved design can benefit the inhabitants of any interior.
Identifying that workplaces and hospitality venues face similar challenges when it comes to providing a comfortable lighting ambience and pleasant acoustics, ISM Objects has developed Teamwork to offer a focused lighting solution with the added benefit of high level acoustic absorption. Perfect for positioning over dining tables, desks or even meeting tables, Teamwork absorbs noise, thus preventing ambient noise pollution and making interiors quieter and more private for all.
ISM Objects has mastered both light and sound with its stylish new Teamwork pendant. Its special acoustic qualities help it to absorb sound, making it the perfect pendant for the home and work spaces.
Melbourne-based ISM Objects was founded by Celina Clarke and Simon Christopher 25 years ago. Their shared passion for authentic design and local manufacturing has led to the creation of unique lighting for domestic and commercial environments. ISM’s award-winning designs have been exhibited around the world and the duo is widely regarded as leaders in Australian lighting design.
The Teamwork pendant is a wonderful example of ISM Objects’ innovative approach to lighting design. The pendant shell is expertly crafted from spun aluminium and has a decorative fabric panel that discretely conceals an internal sound absorbing material.
The outer shell is finished in matte anthracite or white. The fabric insert panel is available in a choice of 22 contemporary colours, with custom fabrics available on request. At the heart of Teamwork is an environmentally efficient LED lamp source with a special thin diffuser to ensure light is fully dispersed. This makes it an ideal light source for long meeting tables that require an even distribution of light to enhance workplace collaboration.
Teamwork is also flexible enough to suit individual needs. It can direct light in a downward direction only but is also available with the option of up and down lighting, with both options compatible with a choice of popular dimming protocols.
The Teamwork pendant from ISM Objects helps to enhance both concentration and collaboration in the home and workplace by reducing ambient noise through its clever acoustic qualities and outstanding light output. It’s another innovation from these Australian design luminaries.
