CHALLENGE
For this project, Inscape tasked us with developing a concept space that would offer an immersive meditation environment and allow the brand to easily scale to new locations.

INNOVATION
Working closely with the client and experts on the psychology of meditation, we designed a space concept that actively encourages a deep state of meditation through controlled sensory experiences. We collaborated with a local fabricator to translate the design into a pre-fabricated system that can be easily manufactured, transported, and installed in various locations.

IMPACT
The prefabricated Dome is a fully immersive environment of light, sound, and air, guiding the visitor through a curated meditation experience. The space is highly engineered, yet appears simple and devoid of all technology. Its ellipsoid bench conceals a grid of micro-speakers, while carefully-orchestrated LED lighting and aromatherapy create the ideal environment for a meditative experience.
1:1 prototyping, local manufacturing, and the use of renewable materials throughout promote personal and environmental well-being: resulting in a wellness-driven meditation brand that can be distributed internationally.
