While we all know it looks nice, an open floor plan office can destroy productivity and creativity. But once you've invested in that mega modern wall-free loft office, you have to make the best of it. The AK2 Workspace Divider Lamp was designed by Uli Budde and Ivan Kasner for Dutch furniture company, De Vorm. More than a statement fixture, it's intended to help take the edge off the visual and auditory distractions in shared work spaces.
The body of the lamp is PET felt made from recycled bottles, and on the inside it packs acoustic foam to dampen noise. Meant for use in common areas, the light shines on both sides of the divider, doubling the quiet and privacy of work tables, desks and reading areas.

The wide shape makes a good bulwark against visual clutter, and the soft appearance of the material adds a calm tone to a space, while literally softening the bustle around it.
The AK2 comes in multiple colors of felt, but I'm inclined to say the gray wool look is versatile enough to fit nearly anywhere. Pair it with the AK 93 Workplace Divider, and we're almost back to the good old cubicle days.
