Zendesk – The Buddha Wall

  • Design & Build

In 2008, Zendesk, the leading customer service platform, received FM3’s permission to create an online version of The Buddha Machine*, tasking us with the design and build.

This project enjoyed sustained popularity and eventually outlived the technology with which it was built (Adobe Flash). Seven years after the Buddha Wall’s launch, Zendesk re-engaged our services, and we rebuilt the Buddha Wall in HTML5 to bring the benefits of meditative music to more people, including mobile users.


*The Buddha Machine is a small plastic box that plays meditative music composed by Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian. Since its introduction in 2005, the Buddha Machine has won global praise for its novel approach to music enjoyment and has been used in hundreds of recording and performance projects from a wide range of artists. – http://www.fm3buddhamachine.com/
