Pleat Pod is a competition won by ZILKA Studio for the design and construction of a flexible meeting room to be deployed in open plan offices. The prototype will demonstrate an colourful meeting space that can be folded away when not required so that open plan spaces can be utilised without the interference of permanent spaces.

The d___ Lab is calling for expressions of interest to design and construct two freestanding,  internal Meeting Pavilions (MeetPavs), to be located within RMIT buildings.  RMIT Property  Services has provided some funds to pay for design and construction of these rooms.  The  MeetPavs are to be similar in scale and scope to the existing FabPod on Level 10 of the Design Hub.

The exterior and interior are constructed of acoustic felt material. The interior will also have glow fabric inserts that will be activated when the lights are out providing ambient light while presentations are occuring in the pod.

The fabrication of the pod will occur at RMIT University using advance manufacturing technologies in architecture and textile design.
