Acoustic luminaries are the answer to a significant problem in workplace design. Architectural discussions regarding workplace design often feature catchwords like 'the modern workspace, flexible workplace or co-working' (the urge to use a hashtag is almost unbearable!). However, these trends often oppose the wish for a quieter workplace.
