Has the sound of your housemates/partners working got you missing the noise of your office? Or perhaps the pressure of being in charge of the playlist every day is starting to get to you? Well, now you can recreate the office environment at home with the I Miss The Office noise generator.
Designed by Fred Wordie, Ben Olayinka, and Valentin Cheli from Berlin-based creative agency Kids, the noise generator features an open-plan office with icons for printers, photocopiers desks, chairs and water coolers, which you can turn sound on for. You can add in co-worker noises like footsteps and humming, and you can increase the level of ambient sound by adding in more colleagues to the office. It’s not exactly soothing but there’s something comforting in hearing the sounds of other people – and you can turn it off whenever you want.
