The DIAMOND collection of acoustic pods, walls, wall and desk panels has been created in response to the need for a space for conversations, for meetings that require a break from the influx of external stimuli and focus on what really matters. As a means to maintain the balance between personal space and teamwork. DIAMOND panels with their three-dimensional structure act as diffusers to break up sound waves, bringing well-being to the office. They can be made of a biocomposite or non-woven rPET — grey or upholstered. Such acoustic solutions will work great not only in office environments, but also in hotels, public office buildings, at airports, and in all sorts of event, industrial, and logistics facilities.
Arranging the available workspace in the right way by providing employees with space for individual work, video conferencing, meetings, and brainstorming makes the workplace much more employee-friendly. Such arrangements are possible thanks to acoustic pods — VANK’s mobile rooms designed for 2/3, 4, and 6. Thanks to the special design and the use of sound-absorbing materials, the pods effectively block outside noise and suppress the sound generated inside. DIAMOND panels with their three-dimensional structure act as diffusers to break up sound waves, bringing well-being to the office. They can be made of a biocomposite or non-woven rPET — grey or upholstered. The pods feature a safety glass door and come with connection panels, a ventilation system, energy-efficient LED ceiling lighting, a sound system, a TV screen mount, and a control panel which measures: lighting intensity, air purity, and noise levels. The pod is also available in a mobile version — on wheels. Acoustic pods will work well not only in office environments but also at event venues, in hotels, in public office buildings, and at airports.
VANK rPET acoustic panels are made from non-woven recycled plastic. They can come in a wide range of colours if upholstered in a fabric of choice.
VANK BIO acoustic panels are made from a biocomposite based on fibrous plants, i.e. flax and hemp.
DIVERSITY OF FORM
The pods come in many combinations: with one or two glass walls, with the body featuring the diamond pattern on two sides side or one side only (the other is upholstered in plain fabric).
The magnetic whiteboard, fixed to the rear inner and outer wall of the pod, can be used for writing and creating moodboards. A perfect tool for a brainstorming session inside the pod or nearby, turning the pod and its surroundings into an informal meeting space.
The pod is available in the GRAPHIC_LIGHT version with “Friday” mural artwork in 1 of 3 colours available or with a photo of the client’s choice. LED lighting on exterior walls.
The outer left wall of the pod is finished with a system of modules for growing air purifying potted plants. A green wall in the office reduces employee stress and brings emotional balance and well-being to the workplace.
The front panes of the pod – including the door – are dimmed, which further provides visual privacy and user comfort while enabling the user to be in control of the situation outside the pod.
All VANK acoustic pods can be moved freely at any time — and disassembled and assembled back if necessary. This is possible thanks to the castors fixed to the base and the heavy-duty design — suitable for repeated assembly.
FREEDOM OF FURNISHING
The freedom to furnish the pod with furniture makes it easy to adapt it to the current needs of the organisation. Available options include standard seats or collections like CO, CELOO, RING, V6, and PEEL.
To provide proper space for video conferencing, our pods feature TV mounts. Depending on the pod type, two kinds of mounts are available: corner or central.
SAFETY GLASS AND FIRE-RETARDANT MATERIALS
All glass elements are made of double-glazed, laminated, and tempered glass, which makes them safe to install and use. The acoustic panels and fabrics have been tested for flame retardancy according to EN 1021-1, EN 1021-2 (cigarette and match).
Available 2 pod heights: standard H1=238 or H2=223 cm. Power supply: bottom or coming out of the upper part of the roof.
NOISE LEVEL AND AIR QUALITY SENSORS
An optional 6-module control panel with air purity, lighting intensity, and noise level sensors in pods for 2 and more.
QUIET AND EFFICIENT VENTILATION
Mechanical supply and exhaust ventilation, providing air exchange during use. Adjustable ventilation with the possibility of ventilating the space before and after meetings in pods for 2 and more.
ADJUSTABLE LED LIGHTING
Neutral light colour — 4,000 K. Illuminance compliant with the standard for office work. Adjustable lighting intensity in pods for 2 and more.
WIRELESS INTERNAL SOUND SYSTEM
An optional mono/stereo sound system to play audio/ music from mobile devices via Bluetooth.
POWER SUPPLY, POWER SOCKETS, AND USB CHARGERS
IN pods for 2 and more, a 2x230V+2xUSB connection panel is fitted near the floor or in the fixed seats.
VANK acoustic pods have excellent sound insulation properties. They provide confidentiality by suppressing the sound generated inside the pod and help the user take a break from noise by isolating them from the sound of the surrounding office environment. Tests carried out in accordance with ISO 23351-1 showed that speech level reduction (DS,A) is above 30 dB, qualifying VANK acoustic pods in Class A for products of this type.
The walls of VANK acoustic pods boast a high level of sound absorption. Their sound absorption coefficient according to ISO 354:2005 is alpha = 0.90 dB, which qualifies them in class A of absorbing materials. High acoustic performance pod walls help reduce reverberation both inside and outside the pod.
Thanks to their shapes, VANK acoustic panels can also act as diffusers. They provide an additional wall surface to break up sound — something not many acoustic pods can offer. Using acoustic diffusers helps avoid the echo effect.
