Home offices are trending like we are in the 90s and its neon fashion – everyone is doing it (not like we had a choice) and it has been a long overdue Pinterest project for so many! Designers all over the world have been inspired to create innovative and productivity-enhancing work from home product designs that range from furniture to modular pods. The latest one to catch our eye was the Zen Work Pod because in 2020 you don’t need a shed in your backyard, you rather have a warm minimalist office instead!
The company behind this work shed has been acing the game when it comes to well-designed office furniture like flexible desks and ergonomic chairs. The Zen Work Pod was a culmination of their furniture design mission clubbed with the need of the hour. The minimalist backyard structure is a stark contrast to the existing toolsheds, it is a modern workspace equipped with all essentials needed for a ‘zen’ workday. “It provides a fresh solution that completely redefines the home office, providing maximum focus during every working hour,” says the team who especially kept creators and freelancers in mind while designing it. The pod features floor-to-ceiling windows and an angular roof all wrapped in a sturdy oak, walnut, and aluminum structure. It is compact but the minimal build and sweeping windows make it feel spacious.
The pod comes with organized shelves, drawers plus the company’s Smartdesk 2 and Kinn chair. While it doesn’t have an air conditioning unit, there are electrical provisions and space to install one if you need it. The warm woody interiors give it a comfortable vibe if you have to spend your whole day working in a shed. If you have a backyard, this office space is worth investing in as we move towards a more flexible lifestyle where work from home will be a normal option even if you aren’t a freelancer or creator. It provides a dedicated space for you to focus and can double up as a Netflix den if you want to binge-watch a thriller without distractions! Its called work-play balance.
