Getting the Spaced Out Feeling

04 December 2014 | Updated 01 January 1970

The Photon Space is reported to be the first all-glass space, which has been designed and created after years of research, in conjunction with Oxford University, into intelligent glass technology and the health benefits of natural daylight.

It is claimed to address issues, such as stress, low energy and productivity and even broader health problems, e.g. loss of libido. 

The space is a fully equipped luxury suite – with glass that can be darkened or made opaque by using a mobile and it protects the user from the elements, with a constant temperature.

Guests can sleep during the day to help overcome the problems of jet lag and let the light in to feel better – whatever the weather.

The Photon Space is initially conceived for luxury spas and resorts in the health and wellbeing sector. A second phase intends to develop a full all-glass house to be commercially launched in a few years’ time.  

Photon Space is launching fully in UK via CrowdCube with tested and functioning structures.
