Upgrade Your WFH Office With The ‘Zen Work Pod’ Prefab Backyard Shack

As much of the white-collar world transitions to, and remains, in a work-from-home environment, the need for an isolated work area has become more clear than ever. While soundproofing a room in your home or finding the perfect nook to finish your daily tasks might be an easier way to achieve this, Autonomous has gifted the genre with the all-encompassing “Zen Work Pod” — a WFH structure tailor-made for meditative seclusion.

The Autonomous Zen Work Pod can be utilized in a plethora of different ways, allowing it to take on the persona of isolated workspace, studio, exercise room, or whatever else your heart desires. As a “fresh solution, completely redefining the home office,” the enclosure brings a suite of interesting additions to your at-home work area, including built-in shelving, the company’s Smartdesk 2, and Kinn chair — all of which help to complement the dwelling’s aluminum, oak, and walnut construction. Transparent floor-to-ceiling panels provide adequate light throughout, helping to connect inhabitants with their natural surroundings, and refresh their minds when it’s needed most. Early backers can head to Autonomous’ website to preorder one of their own for $5,400. Once the early buy-in period is over, the Zen Pod will retail for $14,900.
