More and more people are spending time in waiting areas, and while waiting want to have some privacy for making telephone calls or working with a laptop. At the same time, workers today are more and more mobile, and in many offices there are fewer and fewer dedicated workstations. The trend is obvious - flexible working spaces will continue to be more and more popular. Martela's latest and most innovative solution offerings in this area are the PodSeat and the PodSofa, designed by o4i.
The round corners and soft shapes of the PodSeat and PodSofa are immediately noticeable, as are the ‘window’ openings, which give this product character and differentiate it from competitors. The windows are one of the key features that make these compact units feel so roomy and spacious. They are at a comfortable height to serve as an extended armrest, so users don't feel cramped inside, and they give a lighter visual feel to the product. Plus you can see at a glance if a unit is occupied.
The PodSeat & PodSofa hasve a swivel base which easily allows users to choose their focus. You can turn away for privacy or to orient towards other people for conversation. When two PodSofas are placed opposite each other they easily create small cabin-like rooms. Expand your options for meetings, work-time and workshops by naming each of your PodSeats and PodSofas, then including them in your space booking system. All units come with optional swing-out tabletops for more functionality. Other options include symmetric or asymmetric screens and several color choices for the various components.
