Evolution of the Open Office with Venue Industries Seating Pods
We designed our seating pods with the downfalls of the cubicle in mind. We know that the evolution of the open office space has created divots that need to be filled. Sitting in one spot all day can be mentally exhausting, that’s why pods are a great alternative for escaping the desk. Although, they can be used as a permanent work station; the seating pod represents a choice of locale. The phenomenon of giving workers an option as to where they can work leads to a sense of workplace liberation. Now, more companies are implementing these kinds of values into their own office floor plan to attract more prospective candidates.
Our seating pods cut down on noise and distractions while serving as a place for alternative office tasks. We created these secluded spaces to help envelop people in their work. The Q-Bo was the first pod we ever designed. It was created with the intent to give workers a semi-private, less formal meeting space and eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming construction projects to create an entirely new room.
The Bondi Escape Pod came next, offering even more seating options. This pod can seat 2, 4 or 6 people. The Bondi Escape Pod is truly optimized for teamwork and brainstorm sessions. The walls are fully upholstered, which provides excellent sound insulation and the floated table design provides ample legroom.
The Honeycomb is a one or two-person seating pod. It’s octagonal shape gives it a unique look while providing enhanced configurability. The angular structure of the Honeycomb allows it to be grouped with other Honeycombs or pushed flush against a wall. Just like the Bondi, the Honeycomb has fully upholstered walls to deafen any noise.
Our newest pod, the YingYang, offers a simplistic design that is available in two heights and can be conjoined to form a variety of seating layouts. The YingYang is our only pod without an attached seat. This allows for more customization of the product — pair it with any chair, yoga ball or standing desk setup. The YingYang is also fully upholstered to create a barrier from office chatter. Any of our seating pods can be installed with power outlets and USB ports.
