Nutshell Is An Isolation Pod That Lets You Take A Break At Work

For all those who work at busy offices, it is a known fact that it’s almost next to impossible to take a proper break. Keeping this in mind, designer Eden Lew has come up with a wearable isolation pod that has been named as ‘Nutshell’ and aims to provide a quality break time to the user.

The idea for Nutshell struck Lew while she was taking a design class that had the students tasked with ‘redesigning the next thing they threw out’. For her, this particular thing was a sandwich wrapper and this led her to be inspired by the fact that people are so busy that they can’t even manage taking out enough time for a decent lunch. Hence, the designer created this pod that blocks out the workspace and adds some quality to the break time.

In the design, Lew has added folds to make her design collapsible, wearable and lightweight. The pod comes in two variations; the white Go and the black Blackout. The designer has also created a companion app that allows users to meditate while making use of Nutshell. Nutshell is a concept as of now, however, Lew says that she has received a lot of positive feedback and plans on bringing it to the market soon
