Abstract [en]

The problem being examined is the disturbing noise that is created in an open plan office on a company working with a creative process, such as a newspaper or a communications agency. The purpose of this study was to examine the needs for today for a sound absorber in open offices and create and design a design proposal. The aim is also to develop a marketing material the product proposal. The problem has been broken down into the following questions:- How does the user look at the need of a sound absorber in an open offices solution today?- Does an interior designer apply sound absorbers when they furnish the intended environment? - How can a design that meets the needs that exists be achieved and to speak the user?The study is based on three choice of methods a literature review on selected topics that relate to the topic, an interview with an interior designer to explore how an interior designer applies absorbers in open plan office and finally an extensive survey that treats the user's needs and appropriate appearance for the product proposal.The design process has undertaken the following methods, design brief, requirements specification, functional analysis and sketches to produce the final product proposal. The graphic material is brought out with the help of editing and illustration programs who compiled the final layout.The results of this work show that the problem of noise in open plan offices exists and that there is a need for sound absorbers in the current situation. The requested interior designer always recommends customers to decorate an open plan office using absorbers to create a pleasant working environment. The most suitable design to the user's needs to be achieved and that it will appeal to the user is that the product proposal should have the same colour, be attached to the ceiling, not to block the view between the individuals in the workplace and to fit in the intended environment.Our conclusions after working with the project are that there are needs for sound absorbers that generate in that there is a market for the product. The needs for sound absorbers are becoming larger as it recently has become increasingly common to work in open offices. The colour choice of the product is extremely important since colours express different emotions. It is also very important to find a consistent layout that communicates to the customer in an appropriate way.
