ROOM

A Personal Space for The Open Office

get it

At ROOM, we’re reimagining the modern workplace. Our first product, ROOM One, is a soundproof booth that helps you get things done. It’s engineered with recycled plastic bottles to do more by using less, and it’s easy to move around and assemble. We ship flat and sell direct to keep costs low, making ROOM One the first to solve noise at scale.

    Pros: 

    Room is a booth that really helps focus in a open environment in an elegant and non-claustrophobic way.

    Cons: 

    The outlet placement is somewhat unintuitive.

    After using the ROOM in a knowtel space and in NOLA for Collision conf they provide a great essential mix of function and comfort and really do a good job of isolating sound from around you. There also is a small fan which does a good job of keeping the air inside fresh.

  • Pros: 

    Great looking, seems effective and is lower cost than most competitors

    Cons: 

    3 month lead time, floppy doors

    Cost savings ($3500 vs $4500+ for most others) is mostly achieved through recycled material and looser construction, like the plastic door that magnetically adheres. Comes in flat packs as if it were Ikea furniture. These are all good things IMO. I had a chance to demo this product in person in multiple locations and was interested in buying a half dozen for my company. They said the product could take as long as 3+ months to arrive, lol? You're not scaling or solving anything if it takes a Q to fulfill an order. There are others similarly priced like Talkbox that don't have huge fulfillment issues, but they don't look as nice :)

    Rob has used this product for one day.

We have these in both AngelList offices (SF and NY) and they're a blast. Well-ventilated (we added extra fans for comfort) and well designed, they fit into almost any office environment. Much better than yacking to your mother in the middle of the office. 😅

@nickabouzeid LIFE SAVER. Worst thing is not being able to find a room for a scheduled call or meeting.

@rrhoover I agree - in general, people unnecessarily hog meeting rooms to eat lunch, have a personal conversation or any # of things.

Funny project 😀, never understood open-space offices - really decreases productivity and work quality to my mind.

I don't understand why they didn't go with getaroom.com.

I work at a co-working space on a regular basis and this is a great product to have. While open work spaces are a good development for the office, privacy is often overlooked. This is a good solution for looking for an empty conference room.
