Sustainability: The Science Behind The Silence

A healthy, well-functioning product is made of healthy, well-functioning parts. This is why all Silen products are safe to use for everyone. How did we achieve this?

Silen Dynamics

Our response to the world that’s constantly changing

Silen Dynamics is our response to the constantly changing world, where nothing might be the same tomorrow. This concept allows users to exchange the cover skins of their pods at any time. As flexibility, modularity and adaptivity are in our DNA, it is now time to take it to another level.
With Silen Dynamics, the new generation of Silen Spaces is endlessly customizable. Redesigning your office will not require you to purchase a new pod, you can simply order a new cover. This in turn extends the lifetime of products, which in turn contributes to our sustainability goals. With this simple move, you can easily change your office environment and give the interior a new vibe.

The new Silen Dynamics generation is available from August 2022.

We Believe in Silence.
And in the Future.

Just like silence can be created by eliminating noise, a sustainable future can be built by removing unhealthy elements and habits.

At Silen, we are constantly pushing towards a more sustainable future. This includes sourcing local and recycled materials. We’re even pushing towards having our entire product range, and all of its components, fully recyclable.

Just like silence can be created by eliminating noisy details, a sustainable future can be built by removing unhealthy elements and habits.

At Silen we are constantly pushing towards becoming more sustainable, including using more local or recycled materials. We are also working towards having even more of our materials being fully recyclable when the life cycle of our products comes to an end.

This is Why

We endeavour to source all of our products locally. Less transport means less emissions. And it means we know exactly where, and in what conditions, our materials come from.
We make products that can be upgraded and expanded without creating unnecessary waste.
We design our products and source our materials to ensure that our products have a long lifecycle.

We Bring Sustainability Everywhere

Silen products are engineered to give all the silence seekers the best possible experience while prioritising their well-being and safety. We believe that the planet should be treated with the same respect. At the end of the day, no one cares about silence when their house is on fire.

All Silen Space features – especially wheels and modularity – offer great sustainability. We choose our materials with the health of our users and the planet in mind, and have designed our products as beautiful masterpieces when it comes to sustainability as a whole. Silen Space pods are built to be dynamic and allow you to:

RESHAPE

Silen Space pods are modular. The modular structure means that you can change your pod size when the need comes without having to throw away the old product for a newer module. No waste created.

RETHINK

Silen Space pods come on wheels. You can roll them wherever you want and change their location easily within your office space.

REUSE

You can take your Silen Space pods with you when you change office as they are not permanently built into to the environment. No need to buy anything new.
