Silence Is Golden: Problem-Solving Acoustic Curtains

Sarah Lonsdale July 13, 2012

Why has no one thought of this before? Translucent, lightweight sound-absorbing curtains, for subduing the sounds of traffic and street noise.

Textile designer Annette Douglas developed her Silent Space collection after she found herself "longing for silence. Noise is annoying. It interrupts communication, reduces productivity, and tires people out." Her solution? Lightweight sound-absorbing curtains that muffle the din of urban life. Douglas is genetically predisposed for the job: her grandfather worked in textiles and her father was a textile engineer. For purchasing information, contact Annette Douglas Textiles.
