The Massaud Canopy isn’t the first piece of furniture that was created for individuals who wanted the option to hide away from the outside world at will. Remember the Abri-Boca Living Pod?
While the pod is more for home use, you can set up the Massaud Canopy is a variety of location, like your room or den and even your office.
It looks like a typical mod lounge chair, until you pull the hood down and disappear into your own little world – at least until someone comes along and brings you back to the real world by pushing the hood back up again.
Aside from the hood, the Canopy comes equipped with built-in LED lighting, a removable pillow insert so you can get comfy, and Bluetooth connectivity for your audio. Aside from extra privacy, the drop-down hood also improves acoustics so you can enjoy watching movies, concerts, or TV shows while in the seat. The Canopy is an optional accessory for Massaud’s Work Lounge, a comfy chair with a built-in work surface.
The Massaud Canopy was recently displayed at NeoCon 2013 in Chicago. It was designed by Jean-Marie Massaud for Coalesse and is described as “a revolutionary step forward in communication and space utilization.”
It’s expected to be available for purchase sometime in 2014.
