66 Captivating Capsules

Pods, Capsules, and Private Space for the Agoraphobic

— November 22, 2009 — Art & Design
If you crave the comfort of womb-like design (or simply want your privacy), these captivating capsules provide personal space for the home, the office, and even transportation.

There is definitely something comforting about being surrounded in your own little space. However, absolutely none of these captivating capsules are recommended for those who are claustrophobic.

Implications - With the proliferation of the Internet, privacy continues to be an issue among consumers. To alleviate the invasions of privacy they cannot control -- such as those occurring online -- more consumers are turning to physical private spaces, embracing isolation in an attempt to shut out their stresses and regain a sense of control over their lives.
