A tiny study room about the size of a large portable toilet is becoming a sought after piece of furniture among Korean parents who wish to help their children stay focused while hitting the books.

Last year, South Korea’s environment-friendly furniture manufacturer Emok unveiled the Study Cube, a wooden box just big enough to seat one person in front of a built-in desk. The box comes with a bookshelf, whiteboard, LED light, outlet and ventilation grill. There’s even a massage bar under the desk that also serves as a footrest.

“Students can avoid distractions of staying at libraries with the Study Cube,” Emok CEO Choi Ki-ju said. “It will also help them focus on their studies more.”

The Study Cube retails for about $2,200.

That’s bright.

I can’t remember anything / Can’t tell if this is true or dream / Deep down inside I feel to scream / This terrible silence stops me

Footrest that doubles as a massager.

“So, Chul-soo, what do you think of your new room?”

“I should buy a boat.”

    This is every parent’s dream and every child’s nightmare. However, looking back, I would still buy it!! P.S. What do you do if you have several children?

    The kid can hardly contain himself, that must’ve been his early Christmas present. :D
