What colours do your office pods come in?
All of our stylish office pods come in a wide choice of fantastic fabric colours and textures to suit all tastes and budgets. This includes recycled fabrics made from used plastic bottles, heavy duty spill-proof fabrics, as well as colourful vinyls for use in tougher situations.
Can I have power sockets inside?
Power sockets and monitor brackets can be added to the majority of our great range of meeting pods so that you can create an office meeting space set up for the tech you need to run your meetings smoothly. Built-in lighting also comes as standard with many of our enclosed office booths. Please remember to unplug any cables before you move your meeting pod on wheels.
Are acoustic pods soundproof?
Acoustic seating pods are not designed to be soundproof, however they do possess significant noise-reducing properties. Their high backs and sides combined with their noise-absorbing foam provide a peaceful space to concentrate where people in the surrounding office will not be able to hear what you are saying in the privacy of the pod.
Our range of collaboration chairs are all designed with flexibility in mind. Use them in meeting rooms, offices spaces and anywhere in between, for team tasks, impromptu chats, and solo working.
Our brand-new Emma chair is here to prove that a jack-of-all-trades can be a master of all. Looks, features, function, comfort and more – there’s so much that Emma offers in a single, light-scale, ‘hybrid’ task chair, that it crosses over into new territory. So, when it is time to enable collaboration (wherever and whenever you need it), the Emma chair sits ready to provide a radical new way to work.
The Hovva task chair pairs a smart, single-piece chair frame, in black or white, with a comfortable, supportive mesh back, to create a chair suitable for use throughout the working day, whatever the tasks ahead.
The Rhuba Lite Task Chair is designed to seamlessly compliment the modern-day workspace, easily integrating with a multitude of task seating. The Rhuba Lite is available with a choice of technical mesh or fully upholstered backrest.
Our new Cube Multi-purpose Chair is a useful addition to your office seating portfolio. Use in your meeting space or conference room, the Cube is equally at home at a desk and for quick informal chats with colleagues.
With its free-floating back movement, the Cube follows your changes in posture throughout the day. Perfect for use in those long meetings (you know the ones!)
Our Flux Task Chair is a great all-rounder. Perfect for occasional office work, the Flux is also at home in meeting spaces, around conference tables and for catching up with colleagues. Its compact footprint means that the Flux may be parked around the office, ready for action.
Black or white frames, grey mesh, or ribbed upholstery, with or without arms, black or polished base, specify the Flux Task Chair to suit your tastes.
I have put a stool in here – yes, you read that correctly!
Our new for 2023, Belle Mobile Stool is a funky alternative to your standard meeting chairs. Designed for dynamic sitting, it is easily moved to where required, due to its five recessed twin-wheeled castors.

Our carefully selected Added Privacy Meeting Pods, are ideal for conversations and collaborations that need enhanced confidentiality. They allow you to offer confidential meeting spaces, which may be located in open-plan offices, reception spaces and breakout zones. Choose from five different meeting pods, in a wide variety of great colours, including fabrics made from recycled plastics.
The Bob Meeting Pod collection offers comfort and privacy in beautifully upholstered walls. The design, based on mobile devices, utilises large flat panels and soft rounded corners which not only look great but reduce and absorb sound. With a glass door wall on the front, the sound both outside to inside, and vice-versa, is reduced to a very feint, undecipherable mumble. Seating available for 2, 4 or 6 people.
Sister to the Bob range, the Bea collection utilises simple clean lines and deep soft cushions, to create an extremely comfortable and homely range of dens. The pitched roof gives Bea height, adding to the office landscape. The Bea seats 2, 4 or 6 people.
The Bill collection is an angular range of fully upholstered dens. The minimal lines of the Bill collection create comfort and a focal point for any interior. Bill is a great destination to encourage both collaboration and private work. Available to seat 2, 4 or 6 people.
For those looking for the ultimate in acoustic booths, with a even greater degree of privacy, the Jensen Hut provides the answer. It features a high acoustic surround, with the addition of a completely upholstered roof, to create a fully upholstered seating booth for 4 or 6 persons.
Aura Meeting Pods are sound absorbing, upholstered booths, that focus on the philosophy of creating a calm and collected space to work and collaborate. Whether you want a breakout area for employees, a calming place of concentration or simply an area to communicate with integrated media and power facilities, Aura has a solution. Available as a 2, 4 or 6-seat meeting booth, it features a sliding glass door for a more privacy.

Here is a snapshot of the office furniture we have been selling, delivering and installing over the past few months. As well as desks and chairs, we have also seen an increase in demand for phone booths and meeting pods. Thank you to all our customers for their business.
Phone booths have really taken off in popularity during 2022. Shown here are our best-selling Penelope Phone Booths, upholstered in Agua Tones Rust fabric. These were installed in a co-working space in November 2022. The booths have lighting, ventilation and power sockets.
Privacy in the workplace has been another big theme this year. We installed two Jensen-Up Meeting Booths side-by-side in a company in High Wycombe. They are situated in a breakout zone, so can be used for meetings, private phone calls or just as a private place to relax.
People are moving away from traditional desk colours like Beech and White with Silver legs. These DNA bench desks have been specified in Forest Oak with Black frames. The Forest Oak finish is unusual as it has a ‘rougher’ texture than traditional desk finishes.

Noise disruptions, lack of privacy and low productivity are problems encountered in many workplaces. The acoustic pod, otherwise known as the privacy pod or meeting pod, is becoming more common in the office to rectify problems like this.
Acoustic pods give employees the opportunity to meet and work in a comfortable area without distractions. We’ve rounded up a few scenarios when having an acoustic pod in the office is the perfect solution.
A meeting pod is ideal for getting together with visitors. This kind of pod can be placed anywhere that you have the space available including reception areas, breakout spaces, and even corridors if they are wide enough. Not only does this mean that guests don’t need to walk through your offices to get to meeting rooms, it also provides a more informal setting.
A meeting pod with high acoustic sides and back panels can block out noise from the surroundings as well as keeping your conversations private. Whilst they won’t eliminate sound completely (so should not be used for confidential meetings) pods certainly provide more privacy than the open office. Fitted with a table, they are ideal for an informal, relaxed one-to-one catch up.
With video meetings becoming the new normal, having a quiet and professional-looking space to conduct them is a must. Fitted with a wall-mounted monitor and a webcam, a meeting pod is ideal for video meetings. Not only does a pod provide privacy, but it also means your meeting will be less disruptive to those working around you.
It’s frustrating, when you want to have an impromptu get-together with colleagues or visitors but all the meeting rooms are occupied. If you have a meeting pod available you can just pop in there and fire away. Some of our meeting pods can take up to six people, making them perfect for that spontaneous team brainstorming session!
Need to get away from the buzz of the office to concentrate on a special project? Take your laptop, mobile or tablet and get yourself to a meeting pod. The acoustic sides cut through the noise and allow you to concentrate on the task in hand. You can also pair many acoustic pods with either a desk or a standalone laptop table, so working is comfortable and ergonomic.
With many companies choosing to be more flexible regarding when employees are needed in the office, we may be entering a time when having a fixed desk for every team member is not necessary. Acoustic pods work well as a desk option for staff who may just be dropping by the office to work for a short period. They can also work well as a meeting spot for teams who may no longer be sitting together on a regular basis.
Whether you require an acoustic pod for meetings or as a quiet workspace for your employees, Lismark has a range of acoustic pods to help. We can also spread the cost over 3 years to make your purchase easier.
