Allsteel Partners with Swedish Acoustic Solutions Brand Zilenzio Building on a Comprehensive Workspace Portfolio
Allsteel Inc. is excited to announce a new partnership with Zilenzio, a Swedish manufacturer that develops and delivers high-quality sound absorption through well-considered design solutions. As architects, designers, and end-users alike seek a full floorplate of varied products with equal consideration of character and functionality, Allsteel recognizes that meeting the comprehensive needs of the modern office requires multiple manufacturers, each with their own unique expertise. And, by sharing research and dealer relationships through formal partnerships, Allsteel can simplify the total specification process in a rapidly shifting design environment. With Zilenzio, Allsteel will offer beautiful solutions for the often-overlooked acoustic challenges in modern workplaces, contributing to a more holistic sense of wellness and productivity in the workplace.
Marie Lindqvist and Jenny Helldén founded Zilenzio with one mission: to create quieter work environments. Many objects in the workplace that reflect sound could absorb sound instead, and all Zilenzio elements are thoughtfully designed and built to help define space through various partitions and screens. Their vision is grounded in three principles:
- Sound: Aural distractions like the human voice contribute to lost productivity and mental strain, affecting our physical well-being more than we realize. Zilenzio intends to help organizations create a more supportive workplace through more thoughtful consideration of acoustics.
- Space: In addition to absorbing sound, Zilenzio’s screening and furniture elements define spaces to either create circulation patterns or give a measure of privacy. With a combination of fixed and portable products, Zilenzio empowers increased utility throughout the work environment.
- Sustainability: Sweden has a legacy of using resources wisely and being aware of the impact of manufacturing. Stone wool, made entirely from natural stone, is a sustainable material, which is durable, functional, and virtually inexhaustible. In addition to being gentle on our world, stone wool is the best in its sound class. Mineral wool combined with upholsteries and wood add warmth to designs, while strict safety standards and chemical input considerations create sustainable solutions.
All Zilenzio products are influenced by Scandinavian design principles, and their portfolio includes designs from Norm Architects and Note Design studio. Notable products now available through this partnership with Allsteel include: Focus Pod, an intimate, free-standing nook in which clients can talk with peace of mind; Delta, attractive ceiling-hung sound absorbers that dramatically reduce noise even in open floorplans, and Timber, a minimalist sound absorbing module that can be combined in many ways for visually engaging wall applications.

This latest partnership follows the success of Allsteel’s previous collaborations with Danish design brand Normann Copenhagen, and the Oakland, California based furniture company Corral. United by shared values of client service and world-class design, these partnerships create an all-inclusive range of solutions in terms of function, material, and aesthetic without compromising on manufacturing capabilities. The founders of Zilenzio describe their brand as one that keeps the customer at its core, always strives to be agile in response to their needs, and maintains a positive, engaged, accessible and solution-driven collective. Allsteel can imagine no better partner to bring human and wellness-centered acoustic design solutions to the American contract market.
