This unexpected circular booth comes in forty-eight inch diameter size with sound softening properties inside and out plus has oodles of finish options. Conceived by iconic designer, Carl Gustav Magnusson, the clever circular design of Silent-Silo takes up a smaller footprint while maximizing functionality. And unlike most office booths, Silent-Silo does double duty on sound absorption with a quiet interior perfect for heads-down work or a private phone call and an exterior that softens sound all around. Choose from over one hundred finish options of 100% Wool Design Felt and Dukta Flexible Wood to create a Silent-Silo that’s all your own.
Choose from 100% Wool Design Felt or Flexible Wood exterior with over eighty options, an interior and ceiling disk in ninety-six felt colors, and add a pop of color with the optional leather pull insert to make each Silent-Silo oh-so-unique and highly customizable. Stay natural and neutral or choose colors that make an impact in an office pod that is equally as well suited to a gaming startup as it is on a floor with the c-suites. Plus, add customized booth numbers and distraction banding for just the right fit.
Unlike most office pods with hard, glossy exterior (and sometimes interior) surfaces, Silent-Silo provides a quiet space for head’s down work or private conversations so what goes on in the silo, stays in the silo. But this innovative pod also softens sound in its surroundings. With the option of 100% Wool Design Felt paired with Akustika 10 substrate, this office pod provides an NRC of 0.50 to provide an unexpected powerhouse acoustic absorber.

Maintenance Wool Felt: Vacuum occasionally to remove general airborne debris. Should soiling occur, spot clean with mild soap and lukewarm water. Avoid aggressive rubbing as this can continue the felting process and change the surface appearance of the felt.

Acrylic: Using a microfiber cloth, wipe with a mild soap (such as Dawn) and water solution (1 teaspoon detergent to 1 quart lukewarm water). Scratches may be polished with Novus No. 1 Plastic Clean and Shine. Reapply regularly to maintain the anti-static, smudge, and scratch-resistant properties.
Acqua Leather: Wipe with a cool, damp cloth. For tougher soiling, use a pH balanced soap (such as Dawn) on cloth and rinse. Though Acqua may be cleaned with harsh cleaning products such as bleach, do not use on the leather pull insert as it may damage the anodized aluminum pull.
