Prague/Milan, 29 November 2022
The Czech company SilentLab won a prize at the international Archiproducts Design Awards 2022 (ADA) with its MICROOFFICE® REALM well-being acoustic meeting room. The new acoustic meeting room, which the domestic manufacturer launched this spring, won its second international design award just five months after being launched. The awards ceremony for the seventh annual prestigious ADA 2022 was held on 23 November in Milan. SilentLab won its first prize there, the Archiproducts Design Awards Winner 2020, for the MICROOFFICE® QUADRIO.
More than 800 products competed for the Winner 2022 title at the ADA, which celebrates the perfection of global design. Over 150 of them also competed for the Special Mention for Sustainability, which is for products manufactured in accordance with environmentally-responsible and sustainable values and the circular economy. Candidate products were registered for the ADA from more than 50 countries, including the United States, Australia, Japan, Canada, Indonesia, the United Arab Emirates, China, the United Kingdom, Singapore, India, Thailand and Vietnam.
“We’re delighted that our MICROOFFICE® REALM well-being acoustic office won at the ADA awards, which highlight the best designs in the world. SilentLab is a genuinely Czech company and our products wonderfully represent the Czech Republic abroad,” said SilentLab co-founder Jaroslav Vendl. The MICROOFFICE® REALM won another prestigious Best of NeoCon award when it was first launched on the market in the USA at the international NeoCon fair in Chicago in June 2022.
The aim of the new MICROOFFICE® REALM well-being acoustic meeting room is to provide an employee with a pleasant and undisturbed environment for work and rest. The REALM therefore supplements the range of acoustic meeting rooms, the concept of which is unique on the market, by being a product that provides a brand-new view of the working environment. The idea for the new MICROOFFICE® REALM is more than just ensuring optimum acoustics. It focuses on well-being. This is why its interior is reminiscent of a combination of a cosy living room and an office, where people feel pleasant and relaxed.
SilentLab has been enjoying success with its products around the world for several years. In addition to increasing interest from customers, this is confirmed by the design awards won, such as the German Design Award, iF Design Award, Red Dot Design Award, Good Design Awards, BigSee Award and Archiproducts Design Award.

It contained, for example, representatives of Studia Libeskind, Michael Anastassiades, Fabio Fantolino, Davide Angeli, Giovanna Castiglioni, Domitilla Dardi and Chrissa Amuah.
