Noise-reduction is the startingpoint in most of Sigrid Strömgrens designs. In her latest project, unveiled at Superstudio Piú in Milan 2013, she takes care of the buzzy sound environment in open offices where the opportunity for privacy often is limited, and the sounds of other colleges voices is a distraction that is hard to escape.TIPI – A freestanding quiet hide-away for noisy office landscapes and public areas. A quiet escape for private conversations & phonecalls. The TIPI also works as an acoustic sound absorbing element in the room that helps to bring down the reverberation time.NOOK – A desktop/tablescreen that protects you from surrounding office noises. Due to its triangular shape NOOK is space efficient and easy to regroup and change spacial layout.
This project is kindly supported by: The Swedish Arts Grants Commitee, KVADRAT & TTC Tibro
NOOK & TIPI is unveiled at the Swedish Pavilion, Swedish Design Goes Milan – NEW MAKERS & DOERS at Superstudio Piú, Via Tortona 27, Milan 9-14 April 2013.

The Eskimo collection was presented in Salone Satellite in Milan 2010. The collection includes a chair and a sideboard, both covered in quilted upholstery. The acoustic door panels of the sideboard are soft and flexible and stay up with magnets. The sound-reducing element is a built-in function, not an after thought.

Grand Central is a collaboration between Sigrid Strömgren & Sanna Lindström. A collaboration that created an innovation – a new way of expanding a table.
Grand Central is an innovative foldable table that expands from a space saving occasional table to become the central piece of the room. The tabletop is divided into 22 pieces and the table expands through its advanced construction.The spectaculor transformation only lasts a few seconds, a short moment of poetry when the table folds out like an origami flower.

The patented noise-reductive table Silent Whisper cuts the noise by half (10 dB reduction) through its innovative material use & construction.
Silent Whisper effectively minimises scraping and rattling noises. This noise reduction is integrated in the design: invisible for the eye, but unmistakable different for the ears.
Before developing Silent Whisper Strömgren spent 6 months fulltime with a group of noise researchers, and devoted two years of her master studies to investigate sounddampening materials & constructions. The material choices are well considerated: During the working process of Silent Whisper she compared and sound tested over 50 material combinations to find the ultimate solution.
Silent Whisper is awarded with Guldsyrsan & Red dot design Award in 2008 .
