Meditation Rooms: these domes, simple bamboo spaces, are actually highly engineered environments of light / sound / air. We designed the soft ellipsoid spaces with a spiraling bamboo structure clad with a fabric that transmits soft colored lighting. An important calming element is a low ring of light, a “horizon” that helps settle and relax the mind.

The Prototyping process involved developing a full-scale prototype with Aria Group in Irvine, CA, pre-fab construction with Tietz-Baccon, as well as light, HVAC, sound, material, etc. engineering.
