Dezibel is a floor placed sound absorber for Swedish producer ZilenZio. They are well known for not compromising with the sound absorbing qualities of their screens, and this is visible in the thickness of the screens of the Dezibel series.

Some thickness is simply required to absorb all the frequencies of human speech. From those conditions a sculptural object with a solid but elegant base in wood and a top in textile was created. Dezibel is used to create a more balanced sound level in crowded public spaces and offices, but also as a decorative object in itself.
