Reducing sound with light: Dasch by Luxxbox

Our workplaces have been stripped bare to an open plan shell. Noise is an issue. Enter Luxxbox’s Dasch acoustic pendant. It reduces sound through light, all within a sleek product.

The Dasch pendant light by Luxxbox may be short in stature, but its elongated and sleek design offers a subtle diffusion of light to create a beautiful, and functional luminaire.

As well as providing effective illumination, Dasch has the added benefit of bringing noise reducing properties. The new acoustic pendant light is the latest in an already comprehensive range. When discussing the new product, creative and managing director Jason Bird says that the entire acoustic pendant range has evolved as a response to the need for cost-effective, yet aesthetic design solutions.

“So many clients were specifying our lighting products and then additionally retro-fitting sound reducing elements into a space. It seemed a logical progression to integrate the two and develop a product that would utilise the space between a surface and ceiling, traditionally only used for lighting, to address noise,” says Bird.

Luxxbox acoustic lighting has become part of the everyday conversation in the design of major open-plan workspaces across the globe, including Amazon, Google, Bose and other large multi-nationals. Even small scale firms have recognised the benefits to be gained by using acoustic lighting in their open-plan spaces.

The Dasch comes in four standard lengths from 470mm to 1870mm. Dasch is a versatile worker, reducing sound with light in any open environment.
