3 technologies unite to create WoodBeQuiet™.

What is the purpose of the space?

Acoufelt strives towards Making Quiet™ in working, learning and living spaces. By first inquiring into the purpose of the space, we can create acoustic environments that are best suited to the needs of the space – and subsequently – the needs of the individuals within these spaces. This is the philosophy that drives our business.

The effect of sound

We are affected by sound in more ways than anyone could have anticipated.



On a physiological level, hearing is our primary warning sense. Exposure to unexpected or loud sounds causes the release of the hormone cortisol, which increases our heart rate and disrupts our regular breathing pattern.


Psychologically, sound is deeply connected to emotions and moods. Excessive unpleasant sound can cause stress, as well as make us less sociable, less helpful and less approachable. The psychological effects from noise ranges from temporary annoyance, to long term disorders.


Cognitively, numerous links have been drawn between sound and cognitive function. At all ages, our tendency to passively comprehend human speech makes any level of conversation highly distracting – which can hugely impede productivity.


Behaviourally, due to these conscious and subconscious effects, as individuals we instinctively navigate away from unpleasant sounds. The outcome is one of decreased output and collaboration; a contagious phenomenon that has the propensity to affect all that reside within the space.
