The Milder Partition offers an elegant solution with integrated SoundSoak panels to dampen sound, and translucent Acrylic panels let in light.
In response to a general frustration with the open office plan, Milder Office designed a partition system that allows workers to see and be seen at their choosing. Individual areas feel open yet enclosed, enabling workers to concentrate on the task at hand without feeling isolated.
Research has shown that that people do their best work in environments that allow for both social ‘buzz’ and activity while also providing them with boundaries and separation. The integrated SoundSoak acoustical wall panels absorb 50% to 90% of the sound striking the surface – reducing noise within a space and reducing noise transfer between areas.
The Milder Partition can stand alone or can be mounted to our workstations allowing for flexible floor layouts that vary from area to area. The system’s custom aluminum hardware is typical Milder, sleek, and minimal. The pre-finished birch plywood and SoundSoak are available in a range of colors. We also offer UV printed Pantones colors to match branding or existing color schemes.
We first connected to the Henry Street Settlement (HSS) through our work and longstanding relationship with the Lower Eastside Tenement Museum, for which we designed and produced office furniture as well as retail fixtures and displays for their museum store. After years of negotiating with the city, Henry Street Settlement was able to add the Firehouse to their headquarter row on Henry Street. Working with Renee Epps, Facilities Manager at HSS, and a team of architects from Beyer Binder Bell, we developed and produced workstations and meeting room furniture for the four floors of the Firehouse. Because groups of workstations are clustered in relatively small and tall spaces, we worked with a sound engineer to limit the level of sound by adding Sound Soak panels and translucent Acrylic panels to our standard partition wall.
Individual single-pedestal workstations have partition installed on two or three sides, allowing for workers to see and be seen at their choosing. Individual areas feel open yet enclosed. The Milder Partitions can stand alone or can be mounted to our workstations allowing for flexible floor layouts that vary from area to area. Also, research has shown that that people do their best work in environments that allow for both social buzz while also providing them with boundaries (separation). The integrated Soundsoak acoustical wall panels absorb 50% to 90% of the sound striking the surface – reducing noise within a space and reducing noise transfer between areas.
We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to be part of this project team and are excited that the Firehouse has been put back into service for this amazing/historical neighborhood organization.

Library Carrel – Ganged
Library Carrels provide a semi private study/work space and are designed for the university and library settings where students and researchers prefer to work undisturbed. The height of the (three sided) partition can be modified to increase or decrease sight lines. Available as single or double sided, the carrels can be ganged to create unique spaces within a large open plan. For example, use a row of single sided carrels to partition a space for different functions. The carrels may be specified with lighting, storage/lockers, power and data, pin-wall surfaces and more.
MIT Tech Review
Architect: C & J Katz Architects
The MIT Tech Review’s offices offer a space that is responsive to the varied needs of its staff, from private offices, to an art room, to a newsroom hub’ that offers privacy without the cubicle. The newsroom, the anchor of this open floor plan, support easy flow and connections throughout the space through clever placement ‘L’ shaped units that integrate a single pedestal workstation with storage unit. Varying partition heights allow for longer sightlines while maintaining some privacy.
The MIT Tech Review art room includes large tables to display magazine proofs.
Private office with two single pedestal workstations.
Glass markerboards for use at small group meeting, and partitions the team from the adjoining workstations.
Custom designed for MITTR these units integrate a single pedestal workstation with storage unit. Varying partition heights allow for longer sightlines while maintaining some privacy.
Cafe tables with pedestal base, and square or round tops, are available in a variety sizes and finishes. The melanin film-faced plywood is available in a variety of colors including: natural birch (clear), red, blue, yellow, blue, and dark brown. High pressure laminate is also available.
Customization is our strength, let us know if you have particular size requirements. The standard height is 29″.
Round cafe tables with pedestal. Custom high pressure laminates are available.
Forget the cubicle and upgrade to the Milder Quad Workstation to create semi private work areas within an open floor plan.
You can determine the degree of privacy by adjusting the height of the partition or adding side partitions. Our Quad Workstation can be specified with a wide range of options including pedestals, partitions, pin-up surface, monitor stands, CPU holders, keyboard trays, and more.
Our strength is in our ability to customize and make these units match you needs and your space. We regularly provide plans and assistance in floor planning to our clients as part of our proposals.
The units at left have a return, privacy panels and pinwall.
