SnapCab Biophilic Portal - Neocon Sound Proof Pod with Moss Wall


[Chicago, IL] - SnapCab®, a leading provider of innovative soundproof booth solutions, unveiled its latest creation, the ‘Space to Be You’ pod, at this year's Neocon event. The highly anticipated pod design contest, won by renowned designer Shiri Shubar, NCIDQ, AIA assoc., showcased the extraordinary potential of biophilic design in fostering a harmonious connection between humans and the natural world by incorporating a preserved moss wall by Green Wallscapes. 

The ‘Space to Be You’ pod contest invited designers from around the globe to submit their visionary concepts for creating an environment that promotes well-being, productivity, and creativity. The winning design, created by Shiri Shubar, epitomizes the innovative ways in which biophilic design can harness the power of nature to craft a healthy and inspiring workspace. It was revealed by Snapcab on Sunday, June 11th. 

At the Neocon event, attendees were captivated by the unveiling of the winning ‘Space to Be You’ pod design. Its elegant and contemporary aesthetic, combined with its incorporation of natural elements, left a lasting impression on visitors. The pod's concept resonated with the growing desire among professionals to work in environments that prioritize their physical and mental well-being. 

Lindsay Scherr Burgess, CEO and Moss Boss of Green Wallscapes, spoke passionately about her experience of working on the ‘Space to Be You’ pod. "This was a unique opportunity to showcase what is possible with moss walls. It's an unconventional use of the material, but truly created a portal to the outdoors and a show-stopping experience for Neocon's attendees".

"We wanted to challenge the conventional workspace and explore how nature can be integrated into our everyday environments," said Shiri Shubar. ‘The 'Space to Be You' pod is a testament to the transformative power of biophilic design. By immersing ourselves in the natural world, we tap into our inherent creativity and well-being, ultimately fostering greater productivity and personal growth."

SnapCab’s Product Aesthetic Manager, Carla Bostock, expressed her excitement about the contest and its alignment with Snap Cab's commitment to innovation and user-centric design. "The 'Space to Be You' pod exemplifies our dedication to creating workspaces that prioritize the well-being of individuals," she remarked. "We are thrilled to showcase this remarkable design and offer professionals an inspiring, nature-infused space while showing how versatile our booths can be." 

While The ‘Space to Be You’ pod was just a conceptual idea for Neocon, SnapCab's fully customizable booths are installed in many commercial spaces including offices, co-working spaces, government, healthcare, and educational institutions. They are even considering putting moss walls in future pods.
