Maars Living Walls
Occupants of open-plan offices not infrequently yearn for the visual and acoustic shielding afforded by conventional, closed-office systems. The lineaCube offers acoustic privacy as well as a fully responsive working climate. In addition to completely transparent walls, combinations with blinds, privacy glass, and opaque walls are also possible. The minimalist design of the unit is facilitated by its completely self-supporting structure with recessed ceiling and double glazing. The lineaCube is an independent space with its own ventilation, acoustic insulation and absorption, with power, data, audio, and lighting integrated into the ceiling.(Courtesy Jeld-Wen)
