Not a hotel pod, not an MRI chamber.

Looks like something "futuristic" from the '60s or early '70s. All I can think of is that those things look like seats attached to a wall, but then the ceiling is too low.

It reminds me a bit of something an ophthalmologist makes you look at, except for the "seats" and carpet.

It does date to that era.

Is it the seating from a film set, like "2001 a Space Odyssey"?

Not a film set.

There is a common theme to the prior posted pic of the house, though.

So I googled St. Louis World's Fair to no avail. Then I went to the 1964 NY worlds fair. Again no luck.

Help us out a little.

Is it, or was it, in the the Space Needle from the Seattle World's Fair in '63?

Nope

The commonality with the house is not the World's Fair.
