Escape around the world with Portal.
Whether you’re struggling to focus at work, stressed on your daily commute or need help winding down at night, Portal provides a beautiful and unique way to escape noise and distraction and help improve your productivity, sleep and relaxation.
Swipe through our "portals" and let our 3D soundscapes, beautiful visuals and Philips Hue smart lighting immerse you in your chosen location.
