The acoustic technology behind office pods


Getting office acoustics right is a key part of creating a productive and comfortable working environment. In today’s open-plan office, where hot-desking is often the norm, careful thought needs to go into getting this right.

Here at Lismark, we specialise in a great range of office pods, which make use of the latest technology to incorporate acoustic solutions for office environments into stylish, durable and ergonomic office furniture.

Acoustic pods for offices

As they are open-facing pieces of furniture, acoustic pods are not designed to be completely soundproof. However, the noise-reducing technology used within their high backs and sides means that those in the surrounding office environment won’t be able to hear what you are saying within the privacy of the pod, nor will they feel any pressure to make an effort to be quiet in the vicinity of the pod when it is in use

Read on to learn more about how our fantastic range of office furniture can create the perfect environment for both concentrated solo work and meaningful collaboration that won’t disturb others.

Solo acoustic work pods

We supply an extensive range of work pods designed for employees to get on with the task in hand uninterrupted. Available in one, two and three-person workbooth configurations, the Snug Acoustic Work Pod features fantastic sound minimising acoustic properties within its stylish quilted or plain foam-backed upholstery.



Acoustic work pods for meetings

Larger work pods are perfect for meetings with colleagues or clients. The chic and popular Cocoon Acoustic Work Pod can accommodate two to three people. Place it back-to-back with another unit or facing another one to create a comfortable and convivial meeting space for 4 – 6 of your team.

As its name implies, the Cocoon has an enveloping effect, creating an oasis of calm within the busy office. The high acoustic surround of the sofa encompasses the whole of the unit, including the top. With noise-reducing foam used throughout the exterior of the back, as well as the whole of the interior, it offers the perfect environment to work and brainstorm without distraction.

Acoustic phone booths

Phone booths are an essential component in providing acoustic office solutions in a busy environment. Whether your team regularly need to complete a list of cold calls or undertake challenging or confidential phone conversations, it’s important to offer a space where they can do so in private and without disturbing the peace of those around them.

Most of the phone booths we supply come complete with doors and so offer a far greater degree of noise reduction than our acoustic furniture. However, noise-reducing technology also plays a key role in the high-quality phone booths we offer.

For example, the Milli Phone Booth, which is available on a short 1-2 week lead time, features a 32 dB acoustic sound rating.

Its class-leading soundproofing materials combine with clever structural detailing to mitigate noise. The interior is fully lined with REACH and RoHS compliant acoustic foam to effectively dampen noise from the surrounding environment while offering the peace and privacy to concentrate on important conversations. With automatic lighting, built-in charging and state-of-the-art ventilation, the Milli Phone Pod offers the maximum in modern comfort in its sleek, minimalist design. It’s supplied on castors too, meaning it can easily be moved as the needs of your office space evolve.

Enhanced privacy acoustic pods

If you require an extra level of visual and acoustic privacy, you can opt for an acoustic pod with an incorporated ceiling. Available as a one, two or three-seater, the Jensen Shelter Acoustic Pod is a perennially popular acoustic solution in the modern office. Featuring noise-reducing upholstery in its noise-reducing high screens, the addition of the ceiling creates a style statement while offering a private place to meet and collaborate.

How your office can benefit from meeting pods


Every business needs to offer ample space for colleagues to get together to collaborate and catch up with clients. If your meeting rooms are in constant high demand or you lack a place for colleagues to congregate, office meeting pods are an effective way to create an extra space without having to move to a bigger premises! In fact, the benefits of meeting pods are such, that for many small businesses, they are replacing the traditional meeting room altogether.

Here at Lismark our office furniture experts have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to advising on meeting pods for offices. If you would like to find out more about how meeting pods can meet your business’s specific needs, please get in touch.

What are office meeting room pods?

Put simply, meeting pods for offices are designed to do exactly the same job as a small meeting room, often with lighting and power points included! Here at Lismark we have a vast range of meeting pods to suit various requirements. However, the one thing they all have in common is style, comfort and contract-grade durability. The frames, fabrics and seating foams used in each meeting pod are carefully chosen for heavy use in a commercial setting.  Not only that, meeting pods elevate any office setting with their sleek, modern design and enveloping, welcoming feel.

What sizes do meeting pods come in?

Most of our meeting pods come in 2, 4 and 6-seater versions, giving you the option to create anything from a useful space for one-to-ones to a 6-seater replacement for the traditional meeting room.

Depending on your square footage, the size of your team and what kind of meetings you want to use your pod for, our experts can advise on the perfect office meeting pod for you. With its comfortable seating, built-in table and sound-absorbing walls, our versatile new Zen Meeting Pod is already proving very popular in many settings. As its name suggests, it offers a calm retreat to facilitate clear thinking within any busy office environment.

How private are meeting pods

That all depends on how much privacy you require!  You can choose from the following:

Classic meeting pods

Most of the meeting pods we supply are open on one side, with acoustic surrounds to offer a quiet and private place to hold meetings. A great example of this is the Jensen-Up Meeting Pod, which came into being thanks to the popularity of the stylish and comfortable Jensen sofa. Think two comfortable sofas facing each other with a linking panel and acoustic surround.

Open-sided meeting pods

Open-sided meeting pods such as the Carriage Meeting Pod provide a great focal point in the modern office. The clever design using high acoustic panels at the back of each sofa, topped off with a pitched roof not only looks great, it offers a light and open space for colleagues to gather to talk without being interrupted by the hubbub of the office around them. A freestanding meeting table comes as standard, and there is the option for up to four USB chargers at the corners.

Added privacy meeting pods

We can supply a great range of fully enclosed office meeting pods to provide the perfect place for confidential conversations as well as casual catch ups. The Aura Meeting Pod is fitted with a sliding glass door to provide total privacy, while still letting in the light. With lighting included as standard, plus USB, data sockets and TV brackets available to add, it’s got everything your team needs to be productive.

Moveable meeting pods

Due to their heavy, robust build, most of our meeting pods are not designed to be moved, however, with its large, lockable castors, the Cabana Mobile Meeting Pod can be moved to wherever the meeting is. This boldly designed pod is made for two, but if you invest in two pods, you have two spaces for one-to-ones that can also easily be placed together to accommodate meetings for four.

Can I choose the fabric for my meeting pod?

Many of our meeting pods are available in a great choice of colours, plus we offer a huge range of durable upholstery options, to set the tone for your unique brand identity. When the time comes to choose, we have plenty of fabric swatches you can look through to find the perfect colour scheme for your organisation.

How does delivery work?

Our delivery service involves transporting your brand-new meeting pod to exactly where you need it in your office. After unpacking and assembling it, we’ll even take all the packaging away, freeing you up to concentrate on enjoying your brand-new office pod!

Can you recommend meeting pods to suit my budget?

Of course. Specialising in meeting pods means we can offer great options for various budgets within the framework of your size and privacy needs. Whichever option you choose, you can expect great quality and durable design that’s built to last.

Let us help you find the perfect meeting pod!

Shaping your workspace: maximising efficiency with the perfect office pod


Office pods play a key role in the modern working environment where hotdesking and hybrid working are firmly established. Their clever space-saving design is the perfect way to provide a comfortable space to optimise employees’ productivity while making a cost-effective style statement.

To find out more about the huge range of office pods we supply, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our office furniture experts today, who will be very happy to discuss your business’s needs in more detail.

Designing a productive office with workplace pods

Workplace efficiency begins with providing an appropriate setting for your staff to get on with the task in hand. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, all the furniture pods we supply at Lismark are made from high quality materials and designed to last for years to come, with their users’ health and comfort in mind.

For example, as well as offering fantastic sound dampening with its class-leading soundproofing and structural detailing, the Milli Work Pod is fitted with custom-designed sensor-activated airflow vents to keep staff alert and clear-headed as they join an important call or get on with a solo work project.

Like several of our office pods, Milli is equipped with levelling feet that can be lifted to access castors so you can move it to wherever you need it, whenever you need it.

Keeping it confidential with office privacy pod

The modern open-plan office layout has many benefits, but offering facilities to talk in private or concentrate undisturbed, is not always one of them. Adding office pods to your open plan space means you can offer the best of both worlds to your staff. They can benefit from the collaborative and egalitarian atmosphere of the office, safe in the knowledge that seating pods are available when they need to have a private conversation on a video call or in person, or a quiet oasis to complete a task that requires deep concentration.

All our office pods offer some degree of noise reduction, although most seating pods are not designed to be soundproof. However, our great range of Added Privacy Meeting Pods provide a fully enclosed space to meet and work without fear of being overheard or disturbed by outside noise.

Making the most of your space

It’s true that most open-plan offices have at least one meeting room, but offering an alternative place to gather informally with a seating pod such as the Brix-Up Acoustic Seating Pod, gives you flexibility and choice in your office setting.

Alternatively, for smaller businesses, larger meeting pods can replace the traditional meeting room, especially when paired with small office pods and office phone booths. Some of our meeting pods can comfortably accommodate six people. So as well as optimising staff productivity, using office pods can increase the efficiency of your square footage too, both in the office and to make the most of  underused spaces such as receptions and even wide corridors.

Maximising office space with seating pods


In the modern office, seating pods can play a key role. This is especially the case in open-plan and hotdesking working environments where staff often need an alternative to the traditional desk or meeting room to work or collaborate with others.

Put simply work seating pods are designed to slot into the space you already have available to create an office within an office for solo or collaborative work. Here at Lismark, we supply a huge range of stylish and high-quality office pods to seat between 2 and X, in a vast selection of fabrics and finishes that you can tailor to represent your brand.

Please get in touch with our office furniture experts today, to find out more about the best solution for your business.

Benefits of seating pods

Office seating pods have many benefits, including the following:


When the deadline for a complicated project is looming or a confidential conversation needs to take place, office pods offer the perfect environment to work in privacy without having to seek out an alternative location away from the main office. The pared-down good looks of the Hem Solo Work Pod offers a compact space to get on with the task in hand, while the Aura Meeting Pod with a sliding glass door provides a comfortable, modern and completely private environment for meetings of up to six people.

A versatile option

Another great plus point when it comes to seating pods is their versatility. Adding them to your workspace can open out areas that have previously been underused. And don’t forget to think beyond the office – seating pods are a great option for break out areas, receptions or even in wide corridors.

While some of our office pods are not designed to be moved, we supply several ultra flexible options on castors, such as the stunning Cabana Mobile Meeting Pod so that you can easily move your seating pod wherever it’s needed, whenever it’s needed.

Integrating meeting pods into your workspace


Even in offices with one or more formal meeting rooms, it can be a challenge to provide space for all employees to collaborate effectively when they need to. This is where meeting pods come in. Not only do they create a culture of collaboration within your company, they are also a brilliant solution to productively using all the available space in your office, including in breakout areas, receptions and even in wide corridors.

Read on to find out more about why meeting pods are the perfect way to empower your staff to work productively together, without taking up too much space.

What are the different types of meeting pods?

Whatever your industry or company size, there’s a meeting pod to suit your needs. Call us today on 0116 251 7741 or fill in our contact form to discuss your specific requirements with our office furniture experts.

Glass fronted meeting pods

For small businesses, where space is limited, or to provide an alternative to a meeting room, a 2-person meeting pod is a great addition to your workspace. Perfect for catching up with a colleague or client over coffee, collaborating on a project or conducting a one-to-one meeting, this type of pod is available in a huge range of styles, from the open-ended to the fully enclosed.

Acoustic meeting pods

For many meetings, the ability to be able to speak in private, without being distracted by the hustle and bustle of the busy office outside is key. For this reason, noise reduction is often high up the list of priorities for business owners looking to buy a meeting pod.

Clearly, fully enclosed acoustic meeting pods with glass doors will provide far more sound protection than open meeting pods. However, people are often pleasantly surprised by the reduction in sound they experience even with open-ended meeting pods. The Brix-Up Meeting Pod is a great example of this. Available to seat 2, 4 or 6, its acoustic surrounds provide ample privacy to meet and collaborate within, yet away from the wider office space.

Choosing the right meeting pod for your office

Making the most of the space available is the biggest consideration when choosing a meeting pod for your office. Here at Lismark, we are highly experienced in advising and installing modern, high-quality office furniture, and as meeting pod specialists, we’re perfectly placed to advise on what will work for your space and budget.

Increasingly, meeting pods are becoming more of a ‘room within a room’, with the addition of tables, lighting, tv brackets and socket points to provide everything you need to present or hold a video conference, just as you would in a traditional meeting room. The Bill Meeting Pod boasts all these features with the added bonus of castors so you can easily move it from place to place as needed.

Of course, as well as providing the perfect space to gather, meeting pods are also a great way to offer employees a private space to work or hold an online meeting.
