DUSK is a compact resting space made for brief breaks, naps or meditation during busy times at the office.
The design is thoroughly parametric, meaning that DUSK pods can be re-sized according to the height of the user and the thickness of the material.
Post-fabrication, the pieces can be assmbled via press-fit locking mechanism--no screws or nails are required. Due to the nature of the dome structure, it is spacious, rigid and sturdy.
As part of the process we conducted a user study to examine the potential effects of implementing such a solution. Read more here. As a result of this work, resting spaces will be placed across the lab in the near future.
