OM Meditation Pod Offers Luxurious Relaxation

Alberto Frias

Does enlightenment get easier with the right tools? Alberto Frias, a Phoenix-based art, architecture and furniture design studio, has updated the high-tech OM Meditation Pod  with Nucleus Micro Ti speakers to add high quality ambient sound to the relaxation experience. 

This isn't Frias' first take on the pod, his earlier creation, the OM Transport Perceptual Pod was is a cozy nest for sleeping. The OM Meditation Pod is designed to have one person sitting up with a curved space of LED lighting as you rest on organic cotton cushions. The 62" L x 34" W x 55" H space is made of soy-based fiberglass.

“The new OM Meditation Pod is a transformation from my original Transport Perceptual Pod,” states Frias.  “It allows you to sit straight up and meditate while relaxing in a soothing audio/visual experience.  As you sit facing back, you absorb the white domed space, which transforms into a personal sky for a fusion of colored light and resonating sound.” Frias also sells the the 3sum pod which allows three people to share the same space while having the illusion of being alone. 

The OM Meditation Pod sells for $12,000 and has a six week lead time for delivery.

 you mention light and sound control, but is there an olfactory control? I would adore fresh cut grass on-demand

 It weighs 100 pounds so I don't think it will blow away in the wind:) I think the OM is a lot more open than the Transport pod which has a bed in it and is covered on top and much more claustrophobia-inducing in my opinion.

 @cassandra it would be my pleasure to find out for for you! I had the same worry, but then I decided to put mine next to the pool instead, so that if i do tip over i will have a soft landing

 As much as I love nothing more than a meditative few minutes of solace, I find these quite disturbing! I worry that I would get claustrophobic and ruin my sensuous experience. I must get down to the showroom and try one!

How strong are these? For example, I like to meditate on my fourth floor balcony overlooking the Pacific, but Im afraid that an onshore wind could easily grab the pod and throw me over. @Dorian Gray if you go to the showroom will you ask them about the safety rating of the materials used?
