Ikea launches 'acoustic' office range

Ikea has launched MITTZON, its largest office range to date.

The furniture company said the new range of 85 products had been inspired by shifting work trends worldwide and that it “prioritises wellbeing through design anchored in holistic ergonomics”, including acoustics and nature-inspired elements.

The range includes a set of acoustic screens, with several items on castors that can be moved to create impromptu workspaces or private areas and folded or stacked up when not in use.

Ikea said that the design of MITTZON was chiefly developed with "biophilic design" or the use of nature-reminiscing shapes, colours and materials in mind, as well as durability.

“At Ikea, our vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people, and that includes their life at work, where a big portion of their time is spent,” said Jesper Samuelsson, range area manager at Ikea. “We believe that MITTZON is a stepping stone on our journey to continue developing furnishings that prioritise the needs of the many people at work, wherever that may be.”

Philip Dilé, product design developer at IKEA added that the company’s goal was to develop an office system that could establish the foundation for a “truly flexible, comfortable and healthy environment, where everyone can find a suitable place to work, feel motivated and inspired.”

The MITTZON range will be available globally from April and in North America from July.
