“The office can get pretty noisy”, explains eporta founder and CEO Aneeqa Khan. “As we’ve scaled the business, we’ve worked to maintain a culture where everyone is comfortable being themselves at work and free to say what they want. That being said, we all have times where we really need to put our head down and escape. Spacestor’s pods are perfect for that.” And they’re not the only ones looking for a quiet space: searches for “soundproof pods” on the company’s website have risen 20% in the last year.

As a leading marketplace for furniture, lighting and interiors, eporta know design inside-out; so we were delighted to be chosen, alongside the likes of Herman Miller, Tom Dixon and Muuto, to supply furniture for their stylish and modern new headquarters. Not only did we provide our soundproof Residence pods, we also installed our Palisades Grid system to divide up their large open-plan space in a way that still facilitates their collaborative working culture. Lorna Oakley, eporta’s Content Manager, sums the change up nicely: “Here is how I would describe the original space: bare, mundane and cold. Compared to now: alive, warm and relaxed.”
