Hey Friends!

Did you know that we've never been as stressed as we are today?  After struggling with stress ourselves, we felt like something needed to be done- Life's simply too short for being stressed!

Thank you SO MUCH for supporting our vision of making the pause a natural part of everyday life and helping us to democratize mindfulness- one Pause Pod at a time.

To show our appreciation - we've decided to release additional super discounted Pause Pods for a limited time! 

With ♥ from Sweden,
Adam, Eric, Jonathan & Linda

Endless relaxation possibilities.

Pop it up in seconds. Sit up or lie down. Block out the light. Meditate, power nap, read, home cinema and much more. ..

 

Please note: Every Pause Pod comes prepared for the Pause Pod add-ons. All of our amazing supporters will be offered to purchase additional add-ons for a special discount after the campaign has ended.

 


 

Enter. Unplug. Recharge. De-stress. Exit.

 

 

Nature + Pause Pod = Recharge even faster.
Nature + Pause Pod = Recharge even faster.

 

Life's too short to be stressed. Don't you agree?

In an always-connected world where outside noises are assaulting our senses every day, the need for a pause becomes more apparent than ever… and easier to overlook.

We learned the importance of taking time to recharge the hard way. After trying out every de-stressing technique there is, one problem still remained: Finding a place, at home or at work, dedicated for relaxation.

Inspired by the blanket forts we used to build when growing up, we've developed a solution that will meet all your relaxation needs. We're so certain that you'll love your Pause Pod that it comes with a satisfaction guarantee.

Thanks for helping us making the Pause Pod into reality and making recharging yourself as obvious as brushing your teeth!


The possibilities are endless. How you choose to use the Pause Pod is entirely up to you.

Calm your mind.

 Pause Pod is made for YOU

No matter who you are and what relaxation means to you, the Pause Pod has you covered.

Do you have a hard time finding a place feeling completely relaxed? 

You're far from alone. The Pause Pod lets you create a private sanctuary in seconds. Simply pop it up and treat yourself with a pause from those dirty dishes and work e-mails. Enjoy a mini vacation away from everyday stressful moments right in your own home. You deserve it.

 

 

 

Do you ever feel exhausted at work?

It's simply impossible to stay focused for 8+ hours straight. Unplugging from work by taking a daily break, in the form of a relaxation technique, meditation or power nap – have not only shown to improve your well-being but to boost creativity and productivity. Being constantly connected and with the trend of open offices makes it even more important, both on a personal and a business level.

Wherever life takes you –  Be prepared to Pause.

When on-the-go, simply fold your Pause Pod into the included carrying bag and take it with you (weighs less than 5lbs/2kg). Pop it up in the park, when out hiking or at the airport, and for once, enjoy that long layover.

Made to last. Made to follow you through life.

When it comes to the design of the Pause Pod, nothing has been left to chance. With a combined experience of 25+ years in design and product development we're confident to say that the Pause Pod and its carefully designed add-ons will meet all of your expectations.

The Pause Pod is made from a high quality, light reducing fabric. When zipped up it will block out approximately 99 % of the light, meaning you'll be able to relax in the dark no matter what time it is. We simply call it: Night on demand.

While the fabric naturally is breathable, the three strategically placed ventilation openings along with the mesh door ensures a rich air flow when spending time inside of your Pause Pod.

If you feel like lying down, the leg compartment can be folded out from the inside of the Pause Pod. For increased comfort, the width of the leg compartment is designed to fit any yoga/fitness mat.

Mesh door for additional air flow without letting too much light in and a spacious pocket for your headphones, books/magazines and Pause Pod add-ons.

 

Use your own mood lights or charge your devices through the cord exit. High quality zippers made to last.

 The Pause Pod is super easy both to pop up and to fold down.

 One size fits all.

The stylish Pause Pod carrying bag, the attachable reading light and the Pod stakes for outdoor use comes included with every Pause Pod.

To meet all your relaxation needs, we've carefully developed three add-ons for you to choose from (more exciting add-ons to come in the future!).

#1 The Mini Pause

Enjoy the silence with The Mini Pause - an ear muff and eye mask hybrid. Keep any disturbing noise out or turn your headphones into noise canceling ones. Fold down the eye mask for a pause on those few places where the Pause Pod can't be used (like on a train or plane).

  • Adjustable and super comfortable
  • Foldable to fit in the Pause Pod carrying bag

 #2 Star Sky  

There's something extraordinarily relaxing about looking at the stars. Unfortunately, most of us are not able to do it very often. The Star Sky will solve that for you. Simply snap it on to the Pause Pod ceiling, lie on your back, turn it on and dream away.

  • Mood lighting for a relaxing atmosphere
  • Battery powered LED

 #3 Pod Cinema  

You probably won’t be in meditation mood all the time. Kicking back to your favourite Netflix show or watch funny Youtube videos can do you good as well. Attach the Pod Cinema to the ceiling of your Pause Pod and stream away in your very own private cinema.

  • Stream while lying on your back
  • Universal tablet mount

 

 

To help you feel even more at ease, we're in the process of developing a guided relaxation app that will assist you in finding your inner peace. Whether you're familiar with meditation since long or never tried it out, the app will offer you curated content that you'll love.

For best effect, use it while spending time in your Pause Pod. Future app updates will include audio-visual relaxation sessions (with the Pod Cinema) and light therapy sessions (coming add-ons).

  • Proven meditation and mindfulness techniques
  • Guided relaxation from experts
  • Suitable for all levels and ages
  • Sessions ranging from 60 seconds to 60 minutes
  • Simplistic interface - Easy to use

And, best of all: our Kickstarter backers will get early (and free!) access. For life.

Please note: when selecting your reward you'll only choose the number of add-ons (none, one, two or three) that you'll like. After the campaign has ended we'll send out a survey where you'll specify which ones you want.

In case you'd like to purchase any additional add-ons after the campaign has ended- we'll offer our backers to do so for a discounted price (to be delivered together with your Pause Pod).

 


We're a group of old friends from Gothenburg, Sweden making things that aims to improve your well-being. In short, we believe that if you're feeling good – you will do good. And that's something that are highly needed in today's society.

Apart from extended experience when it comes to dealing with stress and overlooking the need to do something about it, we've got 25+ years combined experience in the field of product development, design, logistics and marketing and are more than ready to turn the dream of the Pause Pod into reality.

Our promise to you is not only to provide a high quality product but to do everything we can in order to assist you in de-stressing with a vision of being a community rather than a product company.

 


Representing a school/organization?

During the development of the Pause Pod a lot of parents and teachers to children with special needs have reached out seeing the potential of the Pause Pod to be used in schools.


If you're representing a school/organization where you think that the Pause Pod can make your student/s everyday life a bit easier - get in touch, we'd love to help!

We'd LOVE it if you'd follow our journey:
 

We can't do it without you- Thanks for your support!
