WAVE open acoustic pods
Arranging the available workspace in the right way by providing employees with space for individual heads-down work and conversations makes the workplace much more employee-friendly and boosts creativity. Such arrangements are possible thanks to open acoustic pods — VANK’s mobile rooms for 2 or 4. This version does not have a door — it features a plain upholstered back wall. Thanks to the special design and the use of sound-absorbing materials, the pods effectively block outside noise. WAVE panels with their three-dimensional structure act as diffusers to break up sound waves, bringing well-being to the office. They can be made of a biocomposite or non-woven rPET — grey or upholstered. The pods come with LED ceiling lighting with a switch and a connection panel. Acoustic pods will work well not only in office environments but also at event venues, in hotels, in public office buildings, and at airports.

The WAVE collection of acoustic pods, walls, wall and desk panels has been created in response to the need for a space for conversations, for meetings that require a break from the influx of external stimuli and focus on what really matters. As a means to maintain the balance between personal space and teamwork. WAVE panels with their three-dimensional structure act as diffusers to break up sound waves, bringing well-being to the office. They can be made of a biocomposite or non-woven rPET — grey or upholstered. Such acoustic solutions will work great not only in office environments, but also in hotels, public office buildings, at airports, and in all sorts of event, industrial, and logistics facilities.
