The tranquil backdrop for your busy office

Support employee wellbeing by creating tranquil workspaces where your team can work without stress and distraction. BackdropTM is an acoustic screen family which reduces distraction from noise, decreases visual interruption and improves wellbeing through natural biophilic design principles. Use Backdrop to create private zones for focus work in an open plan office or as a divider to form spaces where groups can collaborate without disturbing others.


BackdropTM is a collection of free-standing acoustic screens incorporating PhonixTM
nanofibre to reduce noise. Inspired by the landforms and native flora of New Zealand, Backdrop is available in two design families: Peak and Leaf, in a variety of lengths, heights and shapes. Easy to move and manoeuvre.

Designed and made in New Zealand by PLN Group in association with Vivid Origin.

Sound absorbing

Backdrop contains PhonixTM nanofibre woven with extremely fine fibres with incredible porosity making it exceptionally sound absorbent. This reduces the sound energy of speech to a more manageable and less distracting level. Products incorporating nanofibre are scientifically proven to help resolve the issues of noise in open spaces.
