In retrospect, contract furniture brands seem to be ahead of the curve when they started making privacy furniture for open plan offices a few years ago. At the time, privacy furniture was designed to provide employees with a place to focus on higher-padded walls to reduce the typical noises associated with open work areas. These very drafts will be especially important now when people return to the office after the pandemic to keep everyone safe and healthy. The Iso Work Lounge designed by Qdesign for Arcadia offers a semi-private enclave for privacy and concentration and is at the same time a barrier for the neighbors in the workplace.
The Iso Work Lounge is available in different models that allow flexibility, regardless of whether it is more closed for privacy reasons or a more open design that encourages collaboration. The modular series is available in one- and two-seat models with or without privacy screens to create customizable setups that can easily be rearranged if necessary. Whether it’s a single with privacy screen for full focus, or loveseat models when a meeting is required, or armless lounge and loveseat models to create an open layout for a lobby or waiting room.
An optional open storage compartment is available in walnut and white oak veneer or laminate and offers electricity and generous storage space for personal items. There’s also a rotating tablet that provides a convenient work surface when needed. Even without a storage compartment, the devices can be equipped with a mounted power pack with electrical access under the seat.
