Your own private capsule

Decompression Chamber


Retreat to your own private capsule with this unique statement piece inspired by Jules Verne and the captivating underwater world of submarines. The Decompression Chamber by Timothy Oulton Studio is a perfect refuge for one, the ideal space for quiet work or reflection when some alone time is needed.

Clad in a choice of authentic metals or leather with hand-tufted interior customised in a range of tactile fabrics and leathers. Comfortable bench seating comes in Old Saddle Black or Nut leather. The integrated floating table is ideal for laptop use or to enjoy a drink, and overhead hangs an elegant chandelier in sparkling optical grade glass. A glass porthole offers a window to this beautiful display of craftsmanship, while the thick shell gives a good degree of soundproofing. Crafted entirely by hand in our workshops.

Customised in an array of finishes

The exterior shell of the Decompression Chamber can be made in a choice of riveted Spitfire aluminium, brass, copper, or Fury leather. Tufted wall panels are upholstered in a luscious embroidered Chinese silk in a choice of colours, or choose from our wide array of hand-finished leathers or rich and silky velvets.
