Framery One? Office Pods? Productive office hours?
Working from home is great! While the “debate” is still out there on its effectiveness, I find it more productive largely thanks to very limited/controllable distractions. As companies resume working from the office, I find that I’m less productive and spend more time talking (answering questions, being pulled into meetings, chatting etc.) and wasting time (long commutes, lunch hours) than I did while I worked from home.
These distractions don’t cease, even when I’m clearly in other meetings. So what’s a workable solution to cancel out the noise and distraction to get the needful done?
Meet Framery One, the world’s first connected soundproof pod!
Here’s what I gathered from the product’s website:
Framery One is not only stylish and super smart, it incorporates the latest technology, leading sound insulation standards and echo-free acoustics. You can look forward to a highly adaptable workspace where you won’t be disturbed by outside noise or distractions and can enjoy best-in-class design while you focus on your next project.
The idea is simple. Build a pod that loudly screams “I’m busy, do not disturb me”, and integrate a bunch of smart tech features. The tech specs include a high resolution UI Panel that syncs with your calendars, digital maintenance software, power outlets, speech level reduction, and sound insulation.
Framery pods are meant to help your office work in-person, online, & everything in between. The pods will ensure that your meetings won’t disturb the office – and the office noise won’t disturb you.
There are 3 types of booths for different use cases. The booths can also be built in a short time, meaning no need for massive re-design and renovations.
This seems like a super useful addition to any office, bar the cost. On paper, this is efficient. But I wonder if it’ll work around goofy employees who are hell-bent on getting your attention.
Is this something you’d find value in for your office or is this just a gimmick? What do you think?
