Overhead Tent brings a bright and airy visual approach to the modern workplace with its organic, wave-like shape and sheer materials.

Key Features:

Aluminium Frame

A flexible aluminium frame and spine provides the stable framework for the wave-like shape while adding a unique visual aesthetic.

Easily Movable

Built-in handles on the freestanding base makes it easy to move Overhead Tent around a floor plan, while allowing for variations in height and width

Intuitive Assembly

A single layer of fabric, aluminium poles and two bases make it easy for two people to quickly assemble an Overhead Tent – no tools needed.


Plastic connection points are strategically placed to secure the frame, helping to keep the shape intact.

Reimagined Retreats

Designed in collaboration with a world-class tent designer, the concept of Work Tents is rooted in the human desire to seek shelter and protection from natural elements. Recreational tents provide safety and a haven of security in uncertain outdoor conditions, and now Work Tents provide people in the office with the same shelter and protection they crave.

With tensile construction at the core of the design, Work Tents pair light and airy organic shapes with tent-like and sheer textiles to create a range of flexible and captivating privacy solutions. Steelcase Work Tents challenge conventional privacy solutions by offering a novel and compelling way for people to work.


Overhead Tent provides a dynamic and airy layer of privacy to social and collaborative spaces in the open plan. Architecture-inspired, its soft and light form adds visual interest to any space while providing comfort and shielding allowing people to feel a sense of privacy while meeting or socializing in the open.

There are many benefits of adding an Overhead Tent to the workplace:

  • Versatile: Overhead Tent is roomy enough to support lounge or small collaboration settings
  • Flexible: The lightweight Overhead Tent is easy to move and supports a resilient workplace
  • Ventilation: An open and airy design allows for air to flow inside and around the tent

A New Materiality

As Steelcase started the adventure to bring Work Tents to the office, Steelcase realized that such an innovative concept needed a new materiality. Our focus on different layers of shelter and privacy brought us in the direction of opaque to semi-transparent options.

Our research in the outdoor realm brought us to a light-weight fabric that Steelcase called Ascent (available on Pod Tent only). This fabric provides a high level of visual privacy while remaining extremely light.

To complement the adventurous spirit of Ascent, Sheer came into being to bring a cocooning touch to the Work Tent experience. This trans-lucent fabric provides just the right level of visual privacy and comfort, while letting light coming in.
