With up to 50% of employees having a complaint about the lack of privacy and overly distracting nature of open plan offices, maybe it’s time to check out the solutions – this is where Framery comes in.

Noise is the number one problem in contemporary offices. While we’ve become more communal in the quest for the ultimate open plan office, we’ve also lost a certain ability to concentrate fully. According a University of Sydney study, half the staff of open plan offices has serious beef with the noise and lack of privacy of the contemporary workspace. With the most common sources of noise being chatter, phone calls and video-conferences, Framery has designed an elegant and practical solution.
In designing phone booth style rooms and meeting pods for smart offices, Framery has channelled the owners past lives as distracted office workers adjacent to a noisy, cell phone occupied boss. The company designs and constructs soundproof rooms to eliminate noise and to help you concentrate. The booths come in two major sizes…
Framery O is perfect for making important calls and participating in video-conferences – ensuring discussions that are private and comfortable, as well as not disturbing nearby colleagues.
The Framery O phone booth is ready to use – without the hours, or even days, of construction that many privacy booths come saddled with. The booth includes all the equipment you need to make things easy – a table-top, ventilation system, electric socket and LED lighting, delivering an echo-free, fresh and comfortable working environment.
Framery Q is a meeting pod that allows people to have meetings, brainstorming sessions, and important one-on-one conversations. Like Framery O, Framery Q ensures privacy and noise reduction for the open plan office. Coming in four layout options to satisfy different user needs, the rooms allow privacy for intimate working sessions up to larger handfuls of people to converse and plan. Framery Q has multiple color and accessory options and it can be installed in any space without massive work.
“We are able to come up with designs that are both simple and clever,” says Samu Hällfors, Framery head of design, on the successful designs of the booths, “Instead of looking at what our rivals are coming up with, we work with our customers to learn what they are doing, how they work and what makes them tick. We refuse to make bad compromises. We favour the efficient use of sustainable high-quality materials and we always put user experience first.”
