Framery is dedicated to ensuring that offices across the globe are equipped with the necessary solutions for employee success and happiness, and in this new, increasingly virtualized age, Framery pods remain a key solution. As a result of the global pandemic and a continued increase of video conferencing, Framery pods address the need for on-demand privacy that allows people from all around the world to connect effortlessly and uninterrupted.
As previously explored in our blog, “Framery Insights into post-COVID-19 workplaces,” the long-term impact of the pandemic will incorporate a blend of aspects from remote-working, like video calls and meetings, and in-office work, with employees returning to the physical office.
At Framery, we have been exploring all of the ways that our pods can support these new norms. While the office will not lose its significance, employees will likely not travel as frequently for in-person business meetings, which means there will be a continued need for virtual collaboration. Video conferencing, for example, enables companies to uphold social distancing guidelines, while still allowing teams to communicate with one another.
”Framery pods are acoustically ideal for video conferencing, offering a private and echo-free space which is crucial for an effortless video conference.”
”Framery pods are acoustically ideal for video conferencing, offering a private and echo-free space which is crucial for an effortless video conference. And when placed correctly in the office, that is they are easy and quick to access, our pods provide on-demand privacy which will be needed even more in the future”, tells Mikko Tamminen, Framery Market Intelligence Manager.
What makes Framery pods a good fit for video conferencing?
- Power: Each pod is equipped with power inputs and USB stations/ports, where technology can be plugged in for charging, which is essential for virtual collaboration.
- Lighting: LED lighting and control panels helps to optimize comfort within the pods, especially while on a conference call. In Framery O VCR and Framery 2Q models, users can adjust the brightness of lighting for the optimal effect on their video conferencing.
- Air Quality: The indoor air quality of our pods is tested by an accredited testing laboratory, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, and is found to be well within the limits of M1 emission classification. The air circulation inside a Framery pod is in fact multiple times higher than the general recommendation for occupied spaces. Users can feel safe knowing that the air flow in each pod is optimal for their wellbeing.
- Cleanability: Framery pods are made with durable materials that are easy to clean. Check out our Framery Pod Cleaning Guide for simple instructions.
