Working from home is difficult, what with all the distractions and the fact that you're taking Zoom calls from your couch.
But in this extended WFH era, "going to the office" doesn't have to mean commuting to a shared space.
It can simply mean walking into your backyard or onto the patio and closing the door to your quiet and comfortable new Zen Work Pod, a private, minimalist workspace that's available for pre-order now.
The pod comes from Autonomous, the California-based company that started with standing desks and ergonomic chairs. Now, they've built a wood-and-glass self-contained home office that they'll deliver to your home and set up for you. It features a vaulted ceiling for plenty of headroom, plus floor-to-ceiling windows that let in lots of natural light and connect you to the environment, providing better views than your typical office sight lines.
The roughly eight-by-six-and-a-half foot space includes built-in shelves and drawers, and it comes furnished with a desk and a chair, so you've got everything you need to buckle down and do some work.
Of course, you don't have to use it for an office. Throw in a yoga mat or a bike, and you've got a workout space. Fill those shelves with your favorite bottles, and you've got a new home bar. Affix some sound-proof pads to the walls, and enjoy your very own scream room.
You're only limited by your imagination.
And the 51 square feet of space.
