Haven Pods provide a defined space for individual focused work and space for team collaboration
May 30th, 2014
The innovative geometric design enables Haven Pods to nestle and tessellate to maximise available space, allowing the creation of a community of environments and destinations. Ideal for either an individual within a desk based environment looking for a space to concentrate or a temporary place to work, or for teams to gather for formal or impromptu meetings, presentations or to simply relax away from busier environments.
Haven Pods have been designed to work as a furniture system rather than a more complex architectural screen or partition system. Therefore they have no impact on the surrounding environmental management and control systems within a building. They can simply be erected, plugged in, taken down and relocated, without the need for complex or lengthy installations, with no component redundancy as each is designed as a stand-alone unit.
Solo provides a solution for short term desk based environments, be it for the individual focused work away from the general workstation environment or as a temporary location for a non-desk-based employee. Solo incorporates desktop power and vertical cable management. The 1800mm high Solo incorporates a switchable task light. The increased height delivers both additional visual and acoustic privacy
Solo Plus builds upon the functionality of the Solo but with a larger footprint and wider work surface. Solo Plus incorporates a desktop power and vertical cable management. The 1800mm high Solo Plus incorporates a switchable task light. The increased height delivers both additional visual and acoustic privacy.
Most impromptu meetings within the office environment will tend to be within small groups, at workstations which disrupts colleagues. Formal meeting spaces tend to be for larger groups, so using these is inefficient. Duo provides a location for ad-hoc, face to face meetings and it’s compact footprint allows it to be collocated within workstation environments. Duo incorporates a table top power solution and vertical cable management. The 1800mm high Duo incorporates a switchable task light. The increased height delivers both additional visual and acoustic privacy.
Providing a compact stand-alone meeting solution for up to four people, its footprint easily allows the Quad to be positioned strategically. It can be placed amongst workspaces individually, in clusters as a meeting place or as a booth seating solution. Quad incorporates bench seating along its sides, allowing provision for your choice of freestanding table.
Team Work provides, as its name suggests, a structure for teams to work together. Its footprint allows for up to six people to be accommodated. Team Work does not include any internal furnishings but can encapsulate freestanding furniture solutions providing privacy to that setting. Team Work is also available with a support panel upon which to mount a screen or integrate the Together Media Unit with an Ad-Lib table. This approach makes the Team Work Pod perhaps the most flexible within the range, as video conferencing and sharing of information on large format screens, by multiple users, becomes more commonplace in the office.
Creating informal environments for team meetings where groups of up to ten can meet to talk and share, for the morning briefing, the quick brainstorm or the afternoon coffee. The bench seat solution and you choice of freestanding central table support a concept of quick & private discussions.
Within open plan office environments it is more common today for employees to share resources like printers, scanners and facsimile machines. Aside from the general ambient noise of an office it is generally accepted it is these kind of devices whirring into life that provide much of the acoustic and visual distraction of colleagues utilising them. Team Resource provides a centralised location for these shared resources along with storage for consumables such as paper, cartridges and waste solutions including recycling stations all within the acoustic shadow of the Haven Pod system.
