Design - Kauppi & Kauppi
BuildUp Pod R1 and R2 are characterized by openness, functionality, and accessibility – with the mission to create inviting working and meeting spaces, and to contribute to pleasant sound atmospheres. Semi-muted, subdued acoustic rooms with an equally airy feeling as embracing cosiness, with the same design as the previously launched BuildUp system. The rounded shaped BuildUp Pod is offered in two different configurations. The Coupé version is designed to host work sessions or informal meetings for two persons or more, with facing sofas and a centered pillar table. Pod Work is prepared for one person in need of a private space, furnished with both a desk and a sofa for reading and recreational pauses.
As the name suggests, the round BuildUp Pod is intended for one individual in demand for a small personal corner. Available with either a desk or a comfortable sofa – providing a calm, semimuted space without visual distraction. All BuildUp Pods can also be delivered as empty rooms, ready to be custom furnished by architects. All pods have generous entrances without thresholds that closes with curtains. The spaces are pleasantly lit by integrated LED light-strips between the wooden ceiling beams, combined with additional lighting on wall or table. Conveniently placed power outlets makes it easy for users to plug in various devices. The fabric covered wall elements have equally good sound absorption on the inside as on the outside, which means that the pods also serve as an efficient acoustic solution for the greater surrounding interior. The self-supporting construction is quick and easy to install.
