lie back and relax in your own zen garden with the dhyan chaise lounge concept

created by sasank gopinathan of karimeen inc., the dhyan chaise lounge is a design concept that seeks to immerse users in a relaxing, zen-like atmosphere. inspired by the tree of buddha and japanese zen gardens, the concept combines modern design with traditional eastern philosophies of inner peace by connecting people directly with nature. offering three distinct environments — standard mode, water-pond mode and garden mode — the chaise lounge aims to melt away the stresses of daily life.

in sanskrit, ‘dhyana’ means contemplation and mediation, which serves as the key idea behind the dhyan chaise lounge. at the end of a stressful day of work, users can ‘choose their zen’ to be immersed in. in standard mode, dhyan’s platform acts as a shelf where books, drinks or any other personal items can be placed. the user can utilize the three underside storage compartments to store more belongings.

standard mode has a platform that acts as a shelf with storage compartments underneath, where users can store their books or glassware

 

 

the sound of running water can help in relaxation and in water-pond mode, the platform is a single piece, while an inboard pump creates a waterfall at the rear of the backrest. the user will feel ‘immersed’ in a rippling pond while listening to the calming sound of running water.

small pond mode: the rear compartment alone is opened for the ‘waterfall’ and pond, allowing the user to still use the side storage compartments

 

 

small pond mode is similar to water-pond mode, but the pond is restricted to the rear portion of the chaise, allowing the user to utilize the side storage compartments. finally, in garden mode, users can sit around lush vegetation to feel meditative and relaxed. in this mode, soil can be placed in the rear compartment and planters can be placed in the side compartments to house potted plants, shrubs, or small trees. the dhyan chaise lounge has been announced as a winner of the coveted golden A’ design award in the furniture, decorative items and homeware design category, 2019 – 2020.
