The industrial design and production of Pod, an acoustic privacy chair by Benjamin Hubert for De Vorm. The sustainable alternative to large upholstered furniture to create a 'room within a room' in office and hotel breakout areas.
The Pod is a large privacy chair and is perfect for breakout areas in offices or residential projects. The chair's ergonomics allow the user to work comfortably whilst feeling relaxed and separated from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It's almost a little room-in-room solution with the perimeter of the chair around the users head. The shell of the chair is the largest form ever produced utilising pressed PET felt technology. This felt allows a distinctive aesthetic as well as offers sound dampening properties to increase the sensation of privacy. In addition, the entire design is environmentally friendly; from its material made of recycled plastic bottles to the fact that the Pod is stackable and therefore easy to store and to transport.
