In a troubled world finding your quiet every day is powerful and necessary to navigate the times. One of the antidotes to anxiety, stress and uncertainties can be found in the Quiet.
Creating in quietness helps you experience peace and wonder even in the eye of the storm. In the Quiet we find common sense solutions, comfort and clarity, as fears melt away. Ask questions there, and the answers will come.

Noise is classified as unwanted sound. Noise pollution today ranks by the World Health Organisation as the world’s largest killer pollutant after air pollution. The damaging effect of excessive noise is often seriously underestimated. Unhealthy noise affects our brain waves, heart rate, hormone secretion, all our physical rhythms.
In our fast-paced lives, vibrancy is exciting, but in a world of constant noise, stimulation and digital overload, finding space to reconnect with quiet is more critical than ever. By choosing quieter technology and effective acoustic solutions you create a peaceful environment to rebalance well-being at home, work and in every living space.

Your home is your sanctuary, your place to breathe again, to shed the stresses of the day.
Quiet means something different to everyone. For some, it's the murmur of family talking in the next room; for others, it’s the soft sizzle of a meal being prepared for friends. The heart of every home can be made more peaceful with a carefully curated selection of home appliances and materials that work together to minimise noise and maximise peace.
Nearly one-third of your life is spent at work. As the separation between work and home becomes increasingly blurred, so too does our ability to disconnect from external pressures.
Thoughtful design and purchasing decisions, from acoustic office appliances and furniture to computer accessories, can help restore this balance and boost our concentration and productivity - at home and in the office.
Unhealthy noise equally affects the natural world around us. Responsible technology works in harmony with the nature, not against it.
Both manufacturers and consumers now design and demand technology - like garden tools and lawnmowers - that elevate our ability to engage with the world outside, not drown it out.
Acoustic design is at the heart of building with quiet in mind. The materials you choose become the very foundation for peaceful living.
Whether you’re a designer, architect, homeowner or developer, selecting building materials that prioritise noise reduction is the first, and often most important, step. To discover more about acoustic design across a range of applications, visit Quiet Mark’s Acoustic Academy.
