Acoustics and ergonomics in the office are fundamental elements for workers' well-being and productivity. In a work environment, such as an office, where concentration and comfort are crucial, the design of the space plays a key role in the performance and satisfaction of employees.

Ergonomics refers to the design of workspaces and the objects within them to adapt to the physical and cognitive needs of users. However, good ergonomics in the office not only translates into comfortable and adjustable chairs that promote proper posture, desks at the correct height to avoid muscle strain, and technological devices that facilitate work without causing fatigue, but it must also address the various elements that define the physical work environment: lighting, acoustics, temperature, etc.

Acoustics, in particular, have a very significant impact on workers' ability to concentrate and their stress levels. A noisy environment with poor acoustics that does not control reverberation and exposes workers to annoying echoes or sound effects can hinder communication, create constant distractions, and increase anxiety levels. Conversely, a well-designed acoustic environment, with sound-absorbing materials and appropriately arranged furniture, can create a calm atmosphere conducive to concentration.

Therefore, it is recommended to use wood acoustic panels in the decoration of office walls and ceilings. These sound-absorbing solutions ensure good acoustics, supporting the ergonomic design of a workplace while offering the quality, distinction, and noble elegance of wood.
