Home Offices? Old News. Get a Minimalist Work From Home Shed Instead

Answering the work from home conundrum in the most extreme way possible.


Autonomous, an office product designer with a knack for ergonomics-focused chairs and desks at decent prices, recently unveiled the most extreme reaction to what could be an extended WFH future. Meet the Zen Work Pod.

Designed to be plopped in a spacious backyard, the structure offers “fresh solution completely redefining the home office, providing maximum focus during every working hour,” according to the company behind it. It features floor-to-ceiling windows and an angular roof; plus a sturdy oak, walnut and aluminum build. The Philip Johnson-esque pod comes with shelves, drawers and the like built-in, plus the company’s Smartdesk 2 and Kinn chair. Strangely, it does not feature an air conditioning unit, though there are switches and space for one to install yourself.

Buyers can expect delivery in two to four days and setup service in less than 72 hours after delivery. Autonomous’ Zen Work Pod will retail for $14,900, but early buyers pay much less — starting at $5,400. The discounted prices — available near the bottom of the webpage — is available only to early backers. The company says pre-orders will begin next month, assuming interest level is high enough, with pre-orders delivered two months after that.
