Swarovski International 
Linea Sliding Door and xLocker2 System with Acoustic Rated Perforations

Designed by The World Is Round, Swarovski’s new headquarters feature Planex's acoustic treated Linea Sliding Door Cabinet and xLocker2 System in a monochromatic palette. Designed within a heritage setting, Planex were engaged to develop a custom storage solution that addressed multiple acoustic and aesthetic requirements for Swarovski’s new headquarters in the historic Woolstores office complex in Sydney’s Alexandria.

Discussions revolved around “the various ways that people did things, their day-to-day working style, the types of workspaces needed, storage requirements and acoustic needs”. Working with local manufacturers like Planex really brought the vision to life, Cliff explained, thanks to their “full-time research and development capability and the ability to customise and prototype very quickly.”
