What is an office pod?

A pod is a word of uncertain origins, but seems to derive from biological references to “seed vessels” and later popularised in science fiction references – e.g. escape pods. In the era of cubical farms, offices filled with cubicles are sometimes called a sea of cubicles and additionally called pods (such as 4-pod or 8-pod of cubes. When you look at the design of office pods, you can see how the metaphor rubs off. In a workplace context, office pods (aka office booths or phone booths) are freestanding or fixed one or two-person sealed rooms that offer privacy and various degrees of soundproofing. Being closed off and resistant to the hustle and bustle of an open office allows workers much need quiet and focused time to ‘escape’ from the hustle and bustle of collaborative, hybrid workspaces.
