The Seed Pod

The Seed Pod

(Helping to plant the seeds of personal creativity)

The Seed Pod is a prototype for a semiprivate personal workspace. The painted wood structure was designed to accommodate one person at a time, where they have access to a comfortable place to sit, ample work surfaces, and lots of storage space. A smaller moveable desktop designed especially for the placement of a computer, can be positioned into various locations under the main desk for easy access in and out of the Seed Pod. The structure is mounted on wheels and is wired so that it can be plugged into any nearby electrical outlet.

The slatted composition of the Seed Pod was designed to provide a special semiprivate place where the occupants might become inspired to think more creatively about their own personal work activities. The hope is that the vertical slats will remind the occupant of sitting in a forest of sapling trees.

The structure was sized to fit into a private home, and/or to become part of any conventional commercial office environment.
