by Brianna Crandall — July 17, 2020 — Adding to its existing range of collaborative and privacy solutions, commercial seating provider Dauphin is introducing Bosse Series 2 Acoustic Pods and the Bosse Series 4 Room-in-Room System to the Americas market. This innovative product range is the result of 40 years of Bosse’s experience delivering room-in-room solutions to global workplaces.
Designed with a sleek aesthetic and acoustic privacy in mind, these Bosse products measure noise reductions of 37-39 decibels in Rw (Weighted Sound Reduction) tests, according to the company.
All models are powered by an easy plug-and-play system that can be inserted into a nearby duplex outlet. Acoustic Pods and Room-in-Rooms can be moved to different locations when needed, re-assembled and ready for use the same day.
Both Series 2 and Series 4 offer quiet ventilation systems with an air exchange rate of 50 times per hour, engineered to keep their interior environments a comfortable temperature. An integrated motion sensor automatically turns on the LED lighting and ventilation system when someone enters, and powers off when unoccupied.
Bosse Series 2 Acoustic Pods
Bosse Series 2 Acoustic Pods consist of three models: a telephone pod, dialogue pod and collaboration pod. These structures are made of steel and are available in black or white frames. Exterior wall panels can be customized with a selection of eight neutral colors or four natural wood finishes. To optimize space outside the pod, the exterior walls can also be equipped with magnetic white board.
Interiors can be customized with a selection of 32 acoustic fabrics. To maintain noise reduction levels at least one wall must be covered in fabric. Other acoustic measures include magnetic door closure, felt ceiling and carpeting on the floor.
The Series 2 Telephone Pod includes the additional option of an acoustically effective wall panel in white pine with a rail system that allows the user to adjust the height of the work shelf; integrated power and USB connections are available for the shelf. The Dialogue pod offers an optional pendant lamp and floor-mounted table base.
Bosse Series 4 Room-in-Room System
The Bosse Series 4 Room-in-Room System is available in four different sizes with natural silver or black anodized aluminum frames. Each unit is enclosed in safety glass, with laminated sound insulation film. The frameless glass door is equipped with discrete, almost concealed hinges, magnetic door closure and an elegant sleek handle.
Bosse rooms offer high-performance LED lighting with free-form lenses for optimal illumination and the ability to regulate the color temperature with “tunable white” technology. Ventilation can be adjusted by occupants to their individual preference and is available with an optional air quality sensor.
For visual privacy or to optimize usage of space, flexible sliding panels can be installed inside or outside the room. Simple to hang and retrofit at any time, panels move easily on rails and are available as an acoustic panel, melamine or whiteboard. Technology panels to support telecommunication devices for presentations, collaboration or virtual meetings are also available.
