Loud about noise...

Monaco businesswoman Edith Derlon has moved into the publishing business with a print magazine, Derlon News. Published three-times a year, the second edition is about to appear, and the focus will once again be on major lifestyle issues. Derlon News focusses on lifestyle through architecture, providing design and innovation for a healthier and forever young lifestyle. Edith is particularly concerned about the damaging effects of noise. In fact, she says her most important mission in life is to make her clients’ workplaces and bedrooms quieter and healthier…

Noise accelerates the ageing process, has a negative impact on our mental health, performance and behaviour. A bad night’s sleep and too much noise lead to stress, frustration, cardiovascular problems, and aggression. Learning Difficulties, Sleep Deprivation, Tinnitus - a ringing sound in the ear, all have a bad effect on the nervous system, causing annoyance and hypertension.

Noise has become a natural aspect of our daily life. This is true to the extent that some of us may feel that a quiet place is extraordinary in today’s world.

Esion Home attacks the problem head-on. A quiet bedroom is the most important room in any home, since we spend so much time there. To have a calm, quiet bedroom is a basic requirement for surviving well in today's world.

With the goal of creating a restful, noise-free sleeping environment for her clients to replenish their energies, Edith Derlon founded Esion Home (reads as ‘noise’ backwards), the Monaco-based renovation company that uses patented soundproofing technology never before available. Unlike anything else on the market, Esion products reduce noise by 95% and almost completely remove the negative effects of auditory stress.
