foldable storable meditation pod


Meditation is a healthy way to deal with stress. However, people have trouble finding the time and place to practise meditation. People who don't meditate have a higher barrier to entry because of the inconvenience. Lotus reduces social stigma and creates an environment that allows for accessible meditation, so people are able to alleviate their stress more easily.

Lotus is easily stored away so it will not take up valuable space in offices or studios. Lotus appeals to all the senses – touch, sight, smell, hearing – to create a stress relief product that appeals to more than just one aspect of a person's being. 


The purpose of the project is to encourage more users to try meditation, since just 20 minutes of meditation per day has overwhelming health benefits. Lotus is a system that offers a mobile app in addition to a physical product, leaving it up to the user to decide what fits her preferences best. The simple app allows a user to define how long they want their meditation session to be and what type, making the meditation experience customisable to the user and their busy schedule.
