    Pod Tent is a freestanding enclosure that limits distractions in the open office by providing individuals with a comfortable and private space to do their best work.


    Reimagined Retreats

    Designed in collaboration with a world-class tent designer, the concept of Work Tents is rooted in the human desire to seek shelter and protection from natural elements. Recreational tents provide safety and a haven of security in uncertain outdoor conditions, and now Work Tents provide people in the office with the same shelter and protection they crave.

    With tensile construction at the core of the design, Work Tents pair light and airy organic shapes with tent-like and sheer textiles to create a range of flexible and captivating privacy solutions. Steelcase Work Tents challenge conventional privacy solutions by offering a novel and compelling way for people to work.

    Modern Privacy

    Pod Tent is the perfect retreat from common office distractions, providing a comfortable, private working environment for focus or rejuvenation. Its unique and organic shape adds a compelling and unconventional visual aesthetic to the modern workplace.

    There are many benefits of adding a Pod Tent to the workplace:

    • Versatile: Pod Tent is roomy enough to support individual desking or lounge settings
    • Flexible: The lightweight Pod Tent is easy to move and supports a resilient workplace
    • Airflow: A standard open-air roof and door provides ventilation inside the tent
    • Cost Savings: Pod Tent is budget friendly and a fraction of the cost of traditional stand-alone pods and enclaves

    Aluminum Frame

    An exposed and flexible aluminum frame provides the highly stable framework for the organic shape while adding a unique visual aesthetic.

    Plastic or self-fastening connection points are strategically placed around the tent to secure the fabric to the frame, helping to keep the shape intact.

    A New Materiality

    As we started the adventure to bring Work Tents to the office, we realized that such an innovative concept needed a new materiality. Our focus on different layers of shelter and privacy brought us in the direction of opaque to semi-transparent options.

    Our research in the outdoor realm brought us to a light-weight fabric that we called Ascent. This fabric provides a high level of visual privacy while remaining extremely light.

    To complement the adventurous spirit of Ascent, Sheer came into being to bring a cocooning touch to the Work Tent experience. This trans-lucent fabric provides just the right level of visual privacy and comfort, while letting light coming in.
