Headspace steps beyond app-creation with new Oyler Wu-designed meditation pods

Oyler Wu's Meditation Pod design for Headspace features an organic interior
App developer Headspace – which boasts six million users – has launched a new meditation pod designed by Los Angeles-based architects Oyler Wu.

Billed as “The first physical manifestation of Headspace,” the meditation pods are available for preview now, will a full global launch scheduled for later this year.

“We’re continually striving to create the most compelling invitation for people to practice meditation,” says Rich Pierson, co-founder of Headspace.com. “Part of the challenge is how do you make meditation – which is an intangible exercise – tangible? The pods are an innovative way to do this and will hopefully encourage people to reevaluate how they look at meditation.”

The Pods are a continuation of Oyler Wu’s signature style of experimental design, material research and fabrication.

Inspired by the tranquil atmosphere of natural geological formations, the Headspace Meditation Pod juxtaposes a modern minimalist exterior with an organic interior, created from multiple layers of machine-cut wood, laid on top of a steel structure to create an environmentally-conscious product.

With a sleek, curvilinear seating position, the pods have been designed to create a comfortable and soothing environment. An internal screen gives access to a variety of content, including the entire Headspace library of guided meditations as well as bespoke material for specific locations.

Putting on headphones and watching the screen recessed into the pod at eye-level, users will be guided through a meditation led by Headspace co-founder Andy Puddicombe – mirroring the functions of the app.
