The more EarChairs you add, the bigger your room within a room. What happens when furniture is designed with the idea that it should behave like a room? It results in a private domain which exists comfortably within a public space, a proper resting place in the middle of it all, a flexible & social meeting ground that can exist almost anywhere.

For example, when a chair has been designed with a proper height and is built with a rounded aesthetic, the result is a well resolved acoustic EarChair that lets you be yourself in your own personal space. Add another to the equation and you have created a room within a room. It is here, in open public space, where you can have a personal conversation, make a telephone call or listen privately to what you choose. 

Creates an intimate setting in sets of two of four. 

Extended ears provide cocoon-like insulation.

Ideal place for a meeting or a quick chat.
