Sensory Nook

Sensory Nook is a revolutionary innovation transforming the wonderfully versatile Nook Pod meeting space into a mobile publicly accessible support unit for people with disability and special needs.

Sensory Nook Pods


Sensory Nook is the product of a collaboration with sensory technology specialists AmbiSpace Ltd and the team behind the nook pod.  The Nook is already an amazing emotionally intelligent workspace for one to one and group working.  The sensory enhancements take it a step further to produce an encapsulated environment to positively influence mood, reduce challenging behaviour and lower anxiety levels.  This is a highly inclusive adaptable space particularly effective for people with dyslexia and autism.


Sensory Nook Pod

At 2000mm wide x 900mm deep x 1900mm high, the modular design of the Nook is the perfect platform for the seamless integration of accessible technology. Its portable nature means specialist sensory resources can be provided where space is at a premium or as a temporary inclusive provision at public events.


Sensory Nook is the Worlds first mobile refuge for special need support and personal wellbeing in busy environments by reducing noise and creating a sense of privacy without isolation.  Added to this is a range of specialist equipment designed to positively influence the mood and behaviour of the occupants. This works to calm or stimulate people with sensory integration disabilities such as Autism, Dyslexia and Dementia to name but a few.  It can help them cope with challenging environments, reduce anxiety levels before they reach meltdown and in so doing prevent challenging behaviour. The result of this is less exclusion and much greater opportunity to access experiences most people take for granted.

Sensory Nook – Inclusive
