weighing only sixty kilos, the ‘cocoon tree‘ is a spherical and versatile den based on a reinterpreted tree house. fitted with a mattress, the robust form has been crafted with aluminum and wrapped in a waterproofed canvas, where six cords are used to sustain suspension, and another six for lateral stability. customizable to the user’s needs, mosquito screens, fans or even heating devices can be fitted. with endless choices of habitation, the cocoon can be suspended between the nature, fixed on a floating platform, simply placed on the ground– giving the owners freedom on whatever location they prefer.
