Office Reception and Collaborative Lounge Meeting Areas for Co-Working

The old adage that you only get one chance to make a first impression is never more true than with your reception furniture.

This is the keystone of your physical front of house impression to the outside world. We are experts in designing reception areas and front-of-house client meeting areas that underpin your business.

Meetings increasingly take place in more informal places such as cafes or lounge spaces for co-working where information and ideas are shared spontaneously. Inspiring reception furniture and shared work spaces help people to feel good at work. At Space-pod we offer several ranges of stylish and modular lounge tables, sofas and soft seating as well as elegant and welcoming reception furniture and counters.

Away from the desk is a soft upholstery system which answers the needs of our rapidly changing workplace as we migrate away from the predominance of the personal desk, with its fixed and tethered technology.

Individual spaces seamlessly integrate with larger, more collaborative working configurations, at lounge, table or café height. Facilitating, both concentrated personal work and collaborative co-working team work.

A stylish bench seating system that works equally well individually or linked with a cast aluminium arm to either a timber or glass shelf.

Acre works well in both confined spaces and larger settings where it can combine seamlessly with various landscape pieces that share the same leg architecture.

Elegant and functional, Abbey is another of our universally requested pieces.

This timeless tub chair is specified for a variety of applications, from the conservative to the contemporary.

Border is an innovative new product that enables small cafe areas to be created easily, anywhere within an office building.

The table is positioned at both work and bar height and includes the option of a pull out power/data module within the structure to allow for it to become an additional and effective work area.
