Pod, Meet Kapsul

Kapsul 1.0, from 1% Design, takes the office pod to the next level with a self-contained workstation that transports users into a quiet space without requiring full enclosure.

Think of it as a bureau that becomes a self-contained workstation. Hidden hardware enables the front to simply fold open, revealing a compact desk within a nifty illuminated niche, thus providing a feel of privacy as well as sound attenuation.

Kapsul’s further attributes include a mounted monitor, USB outlets, and wireless charging.

The prototype is finished in a nice, neutral blonde wood. Forthcoming models include white, gray, walnut, and one with a colorful inset pattern a la Mondrian.

Another tool in the rapidly multiplying work-at-home arsenal, Kapsul enables quick immersion into projects: “users can instantly disconnect and dive into their work environment from the comfort of their home.”
