Boss Design: The Eden Pod System Creating Positive Spaces

Boss Design is delighted to reveal Eden, a workplace pod system that reimagines workplaces as sanctuaries of comfort, productivity, and well-being. Founded in 1983 by Brian Murray, Boss Design now manufactures in eight countries across five continents. The company’s original mission to transform spaces in the workplace, education, hospitality, retail, and leisure from the ordinary to the extraordinary continues to guide its innovative approach, alongside a steadfast commitment to sustainability and the environment. Drawing on 15 years of experience designing pods for workplace interiors, Eden has been developed according to the principles of positive architecture – human-centric design that enhances well-being, promotes inclusion, and connects with nature.

Clean lines, considered geometry and precise engineering bring a distinctive, high-quality aesthetic to Eden’s structure, for a light touch to unify the décor scheme with its surrounding architecture. Its frameless glazing and glass-to-glass corners exemplify this, providing windows into a world of comfort where nature-inspired forms, fabrics, colours, textures and lighting design contribute to a stress-free sensory experience.

Ben Mitchell, Head of Pods at Boss Design says:

“Exceptional design and sustainability are always central to our process, but with Eden we’ve focused more than ever on the user experience. Features such as its timber strip privacy screening, beautiful ombré curtains and biophilic foliage arrangements put people at ease, helping foster creativity, communication and the ability to focus.”


The Eden pod system consists of four modules ranging from an individual focus pod to a six-person meeting space, which can be configured in clusters to meet a wide variety of functional requirements. Individual and group video conferencing suites are easily accommodated, with flexible privacy features available to ensure screen confidentiality, including reeded and frosted glass vignette options.

The ability to specify units with lounge furnishings is a game-changer, introducing a whole new level of comfort and habitability to the workplace pod landscape. With Boss Design’s brand-new Beau lounge seating, Eden pods are transformed into relaxed, intimate spaces where colleagues can meet, share ideas, communicate, collaborate or socialise.

Mark Barrell, Design Director at Boss Design says:

“Eden gives designers the tools they need to realise the atmosphere and thus the workplace culture they envisage. Within a single cluster, you can provide focus working, formal meeting and videoconferencing spaces, alongside a lounge setting – each with outstanding levels of comfort, and each respecting different working styles and levels of privacy.”


The option to adorn Eden with foliage arrangements sets it apart from other pod systems. Bringing greenery, natural forms and visual interest to a space has calming effect and studies have shown that plants – both real and faux – help reduce workplace stress and enhance well-being.

In Eden’s décor, natural colours and textures combine with the organic curves of Boss Design furniture for tranquil ambiance. The biophilic approach is coupled with respect for the environment at every stage of Eden’s design process. The glass and aluminium of its frame are 100% recyclable, as is the FSC-certified timber used in its panels, and all fabric surfaces can be specified in recycled and/or recyclable materials.

Ben Mitchell, Head of Pods at Boss Design, says:

“When we were developing Eden, we shared some of the thinking behind it with clients. The one aspect that attracted almost universal interest was our intention to incorporate biophilic elements into the design. It’s what architects and designers are looking for at the moment, alongside strong sustainability credentials.”
