Hitch Mylius is thinking about incorporating sound isolation into their product range.
What could this be?
Could it be incorporated into their existing range or is it an entirely new direction? How would it retain a connection to the existing range? Could it be a modular system, a hanging system, an integrated architectural system, even a small domestic product or a piece of furniture incorporating such a feature.
Would it lend itself to integrated digital equipment? Audio equipment? A piece of clothing….? What are the limits and possibilities of sound isolation?
Where would it be used and by who?
THE PROJECT CONCLUDED ON THE 6th DECEMBER 2016 WITH A STUDIO EXHIBITION AND CLIENT VISIT FROM BOTH THE HITCH MYLIUS DIRECTOR ROBIN PHILLIPS AND ALSO OLI STRATFORD OF DISEGNO MAGAZINE. SOME OF THE PROJECTS ARE SHOWN BELOW.
This product was designed to create a more efficient working environment and is used to enclose a desk area. The design works on the concept that isolation is a mind-set as opposed to a physical state. The small barrier that the pockets create allows the user to switch off from everything around them, without needing a permanent structure to separate them from their colleagues.
