Focus Booth

Designed by Australian Nick Tennant, Focus provides a quiet refuge for a private conversation or solo work time, absorbing outside noise and shielding the user from view.

High, curved panels form a shield from the surrounding environment, absorbing noise and creating a quiet and intimate place of retreat with dampened acoustics.

Focus is a selection of soft barriers and booths that provides a quiet refuge – a place to have a private conversation or to reflect. A lack of private areas is a key shortcoming of many activity-based workplaces. Providing a place for uninterrupted communication or retreat and relaxation, Focus creates a workspace for concentration, even within high-traffic, open-plan areas.

The high, curved panels form a shield from the surrounding environment, absorbing noise and creating a quiet and intimate space. Shutting out the gazes of others and allowing users to be free from concern about being seen, Focus provides privacy and shelter from visual distractions and noise.

The units come equipped with power and data connections and an expanding range of accessories including signage blade, coat/bag hook, whiteboards, pin boards and a vanity mirror. The booths are customisable and are available in a variety of finishes including fabric, leather, veneer, MDF and timber.

Constructed with slender multi-layer ply or MDF, the refined form of Focus helps organisations to optimise their real estate. Available in a variety of intelligent configurations and tactile finishes, Focus transforms under-utilised in-between spaces into desirable destinations.

Since 2011, Nick Tennant has been a lead designer within the Schiavello Product Design and Development team. With over 15 years’experience in interior design, Nick’s distinctive work is informed by his time collaborating on award-winning projects for leading Australian and international architecture and interior design firms. A value-adding resource for clients, Nick consults on tailoring workspace planning and bespoke product design.

In 2013, Schiavello identified the need for more quiet zones in open plan offices and soft architecture work booths. Drawing from his experience with workspace planning, Nick developed the diversity in configurations and optional finishes for Focus. The progressive design features tactile materials and a flexible design that supports the physical and cognitive activities of the modern office worker.

After years of design and development, spent considering and reconsidering how to construct and bend the timber panels, Schiavello invested in new machinery and arrived at an innovative design.
