Yves Béhar Designed A Collapsible, High-Tech Sound Therapy Day Bed

Hailing from Lausanne, Switzerland, Yves Béhar is a world-famous designer and founder of the company Fuseproject, which has penned everything from security cameras and smart locks to bungalows and underwater research facilities. Béhar’s latest project, however, takes the 54-year-old’s knack for combining cutting-edge technology with sleek industrial designs to new heights with a therapeutic daybed that calms its user and reduces stress via the utilization of specific frequencies emitted through the top of the mattress.

Dubbed the SoundBed, this ambitious new product is being made by a new startup called OPUS and uses what the fledgling firm calls “vibroacoustic technology,” which transmits low-frequency vibrations across the body, from head to toe, disconnecting you from your brains natural stress response and inducing deep relaxation. The SoundBed can play meditations, frequencies, and music projected through embedded transducers, and it can also be folded up into a compact 24” diameter form in order to be neatly stowed away when not in use, allowing you to place the bed in offices, home libraries, or any other variety of settings. Pricing will be set at $1,999, though OPUS is currently offering a $500 discount to customers that put down a refundable $100 deposit to reserve their SoundBeds now — an offer that’s available for a limited time in limited numbers — with shipping scheduled to commence later this Fall.

Purchase: $1,400+
