Not so invisible: Pod and Partition Solutions

Spaces are also about ‘space.’ In these post-pandemic times, where workspaces and homes are getting more compact and versatile, creating a partition or a pod can carve out a nook for privacy and a distraction-free environment. At workspaces, they could be used to create meeting rooms, brainstorming spots, nap places, etc., to boost productivity, engagement and collaboration in the workforce.

Today, design is as much about functionality as it is about aesthetics. How do you create agile spaces that are inclusive of all kinds of needs and look good? Spaces that symbolise everything that makes the human race different and yet bring it all under one roof? While it might sound complicated, we have made it easy by handpicking pod and partition pieces from renowned designers worldwide.

A pod that camouflages to your needs.

Created by a brand known for its 29 years of experience in agile workspaces, this one-person acoustic pod is the need of today. The pod, with anti-collision door marking,  makes working ergonomic, comfortable and flexible with a desk that can be adjusted in the range of 26 to 49 inches. You can work sitting or standing or switch between positions in seconds. It also has a dimmable LED light, sensor-based ventilation controls and the option to add a Bluetooth speaker.

Cosy, colourful and charming.

This ‘micro office’ cuts through the noise, literally and figuratively.

Made with 94% natural materials, it is stain-repellent, flame-retardant and has flawless artistry. It is available in colours like yellow, lavender, and brown, among others. It also comes in different sizes.

Co-create, undisturbed.

A wonder fabric.
