The Adaptive Relaxation Space looks like something that would be found on one of the decks of the Enterprise in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation.' It is a futuristic room that promotes rest and relaxation in the workplace, a space that easily encourages more stress and pressure than anything else. Not only does it provide a much needed sanctuary, it does so on a very personal level.

Designed by Philips in collaboration with a dynamic team of academics and professionals in mental health, the Adaptive Relaxation Space changes its shape and soundscapes to create new calming ambient experiences depending on where users are. Three key themes are addressed here: paced breathing, personal balance, and ambient experience.
