dB Pillar

Swedish designer Thomas Bernstrand explores the potential of an essential element of architecture to add new value and function to a space: the pillar.
Since antiquity, the pillar has been used as support for buildings but also as ornament and monument. Thomas Bernstrand’s version of the pillar makes a playful reference to the latter use: It is possible to put a plant on top of it. But in all other respects, his pillar is different from the pillars and columns we are used to. dB Pillar is filled with textile waste making it a great sound absorber while contributing to a green environment. dB Pillar includes tables, stools, and pillars in various heights. Several pillars with different additional features are available: pillars with whiteboard, with support for climbing plants, with magazine holders, with flower pots, and with coat hangers. dB Pillar works wonders for the soundscape. In combination with the material, the design of the product gives it unique acoustic features. It radically reduces the levels of low frequency noise, that most products fail to deal with.
