It is surprising how the office pod market – in meeting room or phone booth versions – has not seen negative declines following the pandemic; indeed, it seems the health emergency has increased the need to distancing without dividing and increased the need to flexibly reorganize the workplace.
To explore all the features and potential of this hybrid product between furniture and interior design, Estel has dedicated a specific website and a video to its Collaborative Rooms.
It was born as a solution consistent with the Activity Based Working approach and aimed at wellbeing in open plan offices, but following the workspaces rethinking imposed by the pandemic, the Office Pod has highlighted other valuable features that Estel emphasizes at the opening of the website: “Reorganizing your work environment is possible. And it has never been easier”; a work environment increasingly “amplified and multipurpose“.
Because, depending on the equipment, a Collaborative Room can be the ideal place, with the integration of a booking screen, soundproofed so as not to disturb colleagues outside and at the same time to maintain concentration and not be disturbed by noise from the outside; meeting room or individual office, room for video calls or break area, both waiting or print area, or – in Phone Booth size – an acoustically insulated telephone booth.
Actually, to meet every need and adapt to any space, Collaborative Room is available in three versions and six different sizes. It allows you to reconfigure the office space, increasing its flexibility and ensuring, for each version, sound insulation up to 36 dB; LED lighting with illumination on the work surface up to 500 lux; Plug & Play power supply with USB and AC / DC sockets for charging electronic devices; mechanical ventilation (VMC) on the ceiling, controllable from the keypad and from the App, with a maximum flow rate of 240 mc / h.
The design by Metrica has taken care of every detail also from an aesthetic point of view, offering different finishes for the structure, and matching nuances for the colors of the fabrics and the lacquered or melamine surfaces.
