An office pod is a placeable, enclosed, and sound-resistant space that can be positioned just about anywhere. YOURspace office pods come in a variety of sizes from the private study cubby to conference room enclosures. Once nearly unheard of, these versatile pods are now exploding into the business world and even being used in libraries, schools, airports and homes.
At YOURspace, we make high-quality office pods for a wide range of uses that can drastically enhance any space. Here are just a few reasons why office pods are beneficial.
1. A Private Space for Focused Work
YOURspace office pods offer:
- Quiet enclosed space
- Work privacy
- Seating and a desk surface
- Charging power outlets
- Controllable airflow and lights
The single most enjoyed benefit of office pods is their privacy. They provide a private place for professionals to work both in the office, in public places, and in the home. YOURspace office pods are sound-resistant creating a sealed, personal bubble for focusing on work and blocking out distractions. Many professionals prefer having office pods available to having a completely open-office plan, something only recently widely discovered.
2. Adapt an Open Office Plan with Offices & Rooms Anywhere
Most offices are built in the open-plan style. This makes them adaptable to any business that may want to fill the space, making it easier to rearrange with furniture and dividers. However, the ultimate freedom of design is being able to erect an enclosed room anywhere on your open-plan office floor. You can place a glass conference room in the center or create a tidy row of private offices for your admins, designers, tellers, and other professionals who need privacy to do their best work.
3. Take Control of Office Quietude with Defined Spaces
Noise control is one of the biggest challenges in a large and open office space. No matter how many dividers you place, the noise level can rise to a soft roar when the office is busy. Office pods, however, put the control in your hands.
Each pod is a separate oasis of quietude and, as an added bonus, an office full of pods is also filled with noise-resistant material which can reduce the overall noise level on the floor. YOURspace office pods offer up to 4 layers of sound dampening material, so you can take control of the flow of sound in your office.
4. Reduce Stress with Enclosed Retreats
While the open-plan may be efficient in some ways, we’ve found over time that the bull-pen and cube-farm designs increase stress in employees. Private pods with controlled lighting, isolated sound, and adequate space from others can reduce that stress – especially in employees who may be more introverted or have specific challenges related to crowds or distractions.
Office and meeting pods are being embraced as a mental health resource as well as a new must-have in flexible office design.
5. Create Purpose-Built Spaces and Digital Booking
Office pods aren’t just for working, you can use them for a variety of purposes. Larger pods can become conference rooms or more specifically designed collaboration spaces. You can use a pod to create a central break room or a private de-stressing room. Your office might have a greenhouse pod for a climate-controlled indoor garden or a safe, enclosed play area for the office pets and visiting children.
6. Quick and Customizable Style
Lastly, office pods make it easy to customize your office with both useful spaces and easy branding. If you have an empty space that needs to quickly become a functioning and stylishly branded office, office pods are a great solution for both form and function.
YOURspace office pods allow for customization of every detail. You can:
- Choose your finish on the door, walls, and ceiling
- Add windows to let in natural light
- Add dry erase boards
- Add shelving, adjustable desks, lights, and more
YOURspace wants you to make your pod uniquely yours not only so it’s styled to your liking, but so it’s a comfortable space that you want to return to again and again.
