Office Phone Booths
It’s been 93 years since the K2 telephone box or booth was accepted to be the London Metropolitan Borough’s phone booth of choice and brought into service on the streets of London. The telephone box, a kiosk was painted red so that they could be easily spotted and is known as a British cultural icon throughout the world. With the arrival of the mobile phone culture in 1985 and its advances, the number of phone boxes on London’s streets declined sharply by the 1990s.
However, with the advances in technology and the modern office, there has been a resurgence of the phone boxes. Now used indoors, these acoustic office phone booths provide a quiet free space for private calls, video conference calls or to work undisturbed. They give workers an alternative space to escape ambient noise and distractions. The enclosed acoustic phone booth pods, made using sound-absorbing materials feature the latest technology and accessories for a comfortable escape to work. They answer the need for free spaces that seamlessly merge the physical world and the digital world. Equipped with power sockets, USB A+C charging ports and data ports keep the user connected and their mobile devices charged. Additional accessories such as whiteboards, cork pinboards and Bluetooth speakers can also be added as an optional extra. For a pleasant experience, the office phone booths have integrated lighting and an active ventilation system which is turned by the booths motion sensor.
An alternative to the closed acoustic phone booth is the open phone booth. Open on one side for entry three acoustic screen walls protect the user. All lined and upholstered with sound-absorbing material. The open booth protects the user with high side panels and maybe a canopy depending on the model from visual distractions and some sounds. They are more cost-effective than the closed office phone booths as they do not come with all the features.
Lastly, there are the wall booths or acoustic phone hoods that fix onto the wall and offer temporary shelter from ambient noise. Ideal for areas like walkways or large reception halls where there is a lot of noise or where you want to discourage lengthy calls. Phone hoods provide users with a functional space offering a shelf unit and pen holder to assist with taking notes or memos.
