by Brianna Crandall — March 18, 2020 — Workplace furniture designer and manufacturer The HON Company and acoustic product provider Unika Vaev just announced that they have signed a partnership agreement. HON and its nationwide network of trade partners will market and sell certain of Unika Vaev’s decorative acoustic products.

Given HON’s legacy of helping people work smarter and more comfortably, we were especially pleased when HON recognized our commitment to making people happier and more productive in the workplace by providing multiple functional and aesthetical acoustic solutions.

We are thrilled to be able to partner with Unika Vaev and bring new acoustic solutions to our Trade Partners and their customers. As offices are continually adapting to open-plan furniture solutions, finding ways to provide privacy and sound dampening can become a challenge. HON’s partnership with Unika Vaev allows us to meet the requested needs of our customers with a partner brand we trust.
