Soft Boundary Collection from Schiavello

The Soft Boundary Collection allows seamless transition between private and collaborative work.

Soft Boundary Collection from Schiavello


April 1st, 2011

The Soft Boundary Collection was designed by Oliver Field, who worked closely with Schiavello’s in-house workplace research psychologist to develop a product that meets employees’ needs for functional and psychological comfort in the workplace.

The result is a collection with the ability to create boundaries that assist with personal, acoustic and visual comfort, letting employees control their workspaces by changing between private and collaborative work as they need.


Soft Boundary is made of melded synthetic felt that is fully recyclable and comes in a range of colours.

The collection includes 4 pieces – Cumulus, Stratus, Cirrus and Nimbus – and is available as single units or a family, to be used individually or in combinations.


The diamond shaped footprint provides each Soft Boundary with stability, able to be wedged between adjoining tables or aligned with other Soft Boundaries to create partitions or informal meeting areas.

Each piece in the collection has been tested for acoustic absorption performance and has a calculated Noise Coefficient performance rating 2 or 3 times more effective than similar products on the market.

What’s more, Soft Boundary is light-weight, easily stored and easily transported, making it convenient and hassle-free.

Launched in conjunction with the Climate range, Soft Boundary is designed to complement Schiavello’s full open-plan workplace range.
