RMIT's FabPod is an acoustically tuned meeting room housed within an open-plan office at the RMIT Design Hub.

The FabPod’s form and materiality arose from a series of workshops in 2012 that investigated how to minimise the echo within a meeting room without creating an acoustically ‘dead’ space. By positioning hyperboloids to maximise sound scattering within the space, the FabPod has an unusually warm and diffused acoustic with the help of EchoPanel decorative panels from Woven Image.
