The newest and hottest idea on the market is the "pod" - or private (and often) mobile unit within the open office - that allows employees some quiet and private time. "NOOK", a new-ish company out of Bristol, UK has quickly become successful with small footprint, mobile, modular units - or "Nooks" for those who want a more intimate collaboration location that is somewhat removed but not isolated from the office like an enclosed phone booth. The "Nook", aptly called, provides employees in the often noisy and chaotic open office environment, a more quiet respite where they can better concentrate and refuel. This is a godsend for those introverts who need a place away from constant stimulation to have their best ideas! It's modular flexibility also means that it can fill many needs. It has been used as a breakfast nook in the morning, a lunch meeting space or quiet concentration area throughout the day, as well as a rest spot at trade shows and events. This Nook Solo Pod was created for contemplation and concentration - away from the hustle and bustle of the busy office! At about 3 feet square and on casters, this mobile unit can go anywhere. This modular desk pod has a back wall that encloses it and for extra privacy, a side panel or an acrylic door can be added (see images). For a more social environment, these office pods can easily be daisy-chained together. The compact size of this privacy pod allows it to be moved through most doorways without breaking it down, but it can be disassembled by an inexperienced user in 30 minutes and installed in 2 hours! Ships in 3-4 weeks.
