I-Beam Bubble Sound Barrier Blocks Out Office Noise

The New Cube Farm: I-Beam's Bubble Sound Barrier

Here at Sugar HQ, we don't have the typical cube farm that you'd find in other office buildings, but we do get a lot of noise. Not only from the traffic in downtown San Francisco, but from the various street musicians that play outside. So these Bubble Sound Barriers from design firm I-Beam — which provide not only a barrier from outside noise, but keep your music inside your own parameter — would be really, really awesome. I can only take so many hours of bagpipes and jazz flutes in the afternoon.


Of course, the Bubble Sound Barrier may not be completely practical — they hang from the ceiling or attach to a wall with a movable arm — but they are totally retro-chic, and seem like they are straight from a designer in the late '50s trying to predict what offices would look like in the future. The only things missing are the robots.
