Breakout

At Work

In the age of the open-plan office, private space is more important than ever. For thinking, doing or doing nothing, ‘breakout areas’ are now an important part of modern workplace design. Enter the POD.

Flexible-
ability

Breakout zones offer an opportunity for design creativity, but they also play a functional role. A single POD is a personal retreat; two PODS face to face to create a one-on-one private meeting/work space. Breakout spaces are primarily designed for collaboration, but individuals need breakout space too.

Curl up
and work

There’s something about a favourite thinking space, an arrangement of armchair and cushion, a corner of sun to curl into, that's what POD is all about. POD is a productive workspace, but it's a personal space and - in the age of the open plan office - somehow indulgent.

The POD design is a response to providing secluded private space within office environments. The acoustic qualities allow you to take timeout, to read, think, work in peace or even take a nap, making the POD ideal for breakout areas. Or put two PODS face to face to create a one-on-one private meeting space.
