Materials such as concrete, glass, wood, marble or metal have a limited absorption power therefore echoes and reverberations can be frequent, in this way speaking and listening is more difficult; however the material used for the Office Pods is different, it is in fact sound-absorbing , born from the need to improve the internal sound effect.
The excellent sound absorption is made possible thanks to the thickness of the panels that are used and the fabric that is used to cover the walls; all this, combined with visual isolation, especially when placed in strategic environments and far from crowded areas, allows you to avoid easy distractions.
