Sometimes, living in a bubble isn’t such a bad thing. Cocoon 1 by Micasa Lab is a plastic pod providing a room-within-a-room, a separated space in which to disconnect from the rest of the world without feeling completely separated from it. Cocoon 1 can be used indoors or out, and is small enough to easily fit inside most interior spaces.
With built-in furniture in primary colors, this living pod looks a bit like a child’s playhouse, but it actually contains a kitchen and a power pack that can provide either 40 hours of light, or 20 hours of light and 30 minutes of cooking. It’s even available with running water, and comes with a hanging net that can be used to suspend it from a tree.
Micasa Lab envisions the Cocoon 1 transcending the border between space and object, providing a variety of functions that can be tailored to the individual user.
“The confined space is the bottom line when it comes to the human need for shelter, for survival against nature, for solitude among people or against people or for defining the different functions in our lives. Spaces work on all levels, rooms, houses, countries or worlds. The spaces differs but is ever-present.”
