— November 6, 2015 — Art & Design
These modern pod designs range from stress-reliving office spaces to bulbous baby cribs.

While the students at Central Saint Martins can enjoy entertainment inside the rooftop Futuro House, the Cloud Observatory allows its users to view breathtaking scenes from a rooftop in Madrid. When it comes to relaxation, modern pod designs include the Human Regenerator which reduces aging with calming light therapy while SmoothFM's Booths let users relax while listening to a soundtrack of their favorite music.

Sleeping pods are also included within these modern designs. Japan's Ninehours Hotel offers a variety of sleeping pods which offer a peaceful slumber while İşbir Bedding's high-tech musical beds provide a cozy space to sleep, watch movies and more.
