A telephone booth is a large piece of furniture to place in an office. Therefore, at Grape, we believe that it is advantageous when telephone booths do not visually disturb too much. With its exquisite organic materials in muted colors and a design devoid of unnecessary details, Grape Cozy is our proposal for the telephone booth that contributes with great style to the interior.

Good acoustics from the inside out
Grape Cozy is soundproofed, so conversations inside the telephone booth do not disturb the surroundings, and vice versa. In addition, Grape Cozy is covered with sustainable sound-absorbing materials that provide good speech intelligibility inside and outside. The interior features 24mm acoustic felt on the walls and ceiling, while the exterior contributes to the surroundings' acoustics with 50mm natural cork.
The tabletop, which is bent in one piece of laser-cut aluminum, shares the design language and surface texture with the telephone booth's black steel frames.
The scent of cork
The peat-brown cork panels on the outside of Grape Cozy are produced by pressing and boiling coarse granules of cork oak bark with 350-degree hot steam. This treatment releases the cork's own binder (resin) and transforms it into a homogeneous block, which is subsequently sliced into sheets. The process imparts a pleasant burnt scent and helps give the cork its exquisite dark glow. However, like the delightful smell of a new car, the cork's scent fades over time.
Grape Cozy office telephone booth features Knud Holscher's d line door handle in black acid-resistant stainless steel. The beautiful black finish, matching the other fittings, is achieved through long-lasting PVD charcoal treatment.
Thoughtful ergonomics in a telephone booth
When we designed Grape Cozy, we drew on the experiences from the many office interiors we have been involved in since 2005. Therefore, we also emphasized ergonomics by providing ample space on the tabletop for a 15" laptop with the screen tilted back. Similarly, the tabletop can be precisely screwed onto the wall at the height that suits you.
Why the office telephone booth is a great idea
Open offices - where everyone can overhear all conversations - have a significant impact on productivity and well-being*. Therefore, it is necessary for companies with open offices to proactively address acoustic challenges. An office telephone booth is perfect when you don't want to distract others in the office with your phone call, and vice versa. It benefits both productivity and well-being.
* More than 50% struggle to concentrate in open offices (University of Sydney), you are likely 15% less productive in the open office (BBC Capital), and open offices result in a 12% higher risk of sick leave (Norwegian Institute of Occupational Health).
The sustainability of the Grape Cozy telephone booth
An important component of the Grape Cozy telephone booth is natural cork. Harvested by stripping the cork oak bark every ninth year without felling the tree, cork plantations remain a huge lung that absorbs millions of tons of CO2 annually, making cork production CO2 negative.
The cork used in the Grape Cozy telephone booth comes from the outer layer of cork oak bark. The granules of bark are tightly compressed while being exposed to 350-degree steam. This process causes the cork to release its own binder and transforms the cork granules into a homogeneous block, which is then cut into sheets. Therefore, the peat-brown cork is also a 100% pure and recyclable natural product.
The acoustic cradle-to-cradle certified felt on the interior of the telephone booth is made with at least 60% post-consumer plastic bottles. In fact, a Grape Cozy telephone booth incorporates at least 475 discarded plastic bottles.
The core material in the walls and ceilings is FSC-certified plywood.
A portion of the office telephone booth consists of steel parts. These are manufactured in Denmark under the strictest environmental standards. Since steel is 100% recyclable, waste in production is minimized and, again, during disposal many years later.
