Zen

Zen noun.  a practice of Mahayana Buddhism that asserts: enlightenment can be attained through meditation, self-contemplation, and intuition rather than through faith and devotion.


This design aims to increase awareness surrounding the importance of mental health within a working environment. The inconspicuous form isn’t directly indicative of its true function with the aim of avoiding any social stigmas attached to existing medical products. This gives the user an increased confidence in using Zen whilst going about their daily lives.

The functional aspects of Zen are built around the key principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The lighting features several fade sequences with varying time increments allowing the user to find balance in their daily lives through the synchronisation of their breathing.


The product is also capable of delivering a soothing oil based fragrance through integrated humidification which further supports this meditative process.
