With the world under lockdown for an extended period of time, some essential businesses still has to keep at least the bare minimum of its workforce, working physically on site to provide necessary and vital supplies for the health supply chain. And the longer the quarantine continues, more companies may be forced to do the same, as shortages will hit the global market. The Q.workntine Concept was submitted to, and shared with #DubaiIDEATHON, an initiative inviting proposals that respond to the challenges in the creative and cultural sectors caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which was launched by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority and the Art Dubai Group.

Qworkntine Pods concept went on to win the DNA Paris Design Award, and was featured in a Yanko Design article about covid19 office solutions. The Qwork-pod has a Hexagonal hive like shape, which offers flexibly to suit any office layout. It can also be customized to fit in 90 degrees angles, and can be elongated to accommodate for top executives and management. It features an automatic handless airtight acrylic door, controlled by facial recognition, and ventilation fans with built-in air purifiers. The pod is envisioned as made of hygiene friendly non-porous materials that can be easily cleaned and disinfected to avoid contamination.
