Tree Tents

Found this interesting “tree tent” that is made to house two temporarily, it has a wood stove, water storage, solar panel options, natural wool insulation and is made from recycled and/or sustainable materials.

Three meter diameter spherical frame of aluminum and green ash that is encased in a tailored cotton canvas. Inside the snug space, which anchors to nearby trees, are 100% wool winter thermal liners for warmth, along with a wood stove, water storage and options for renewable electricity.

Luminair describes their inspiration for the Tree Tent: “akin to an airship in many ways, its dirigible structure blends two very different but similar engineering materials – aluminum and wood; with inspiration and design queues taken heavily from early zeppelin engineering and early lightweight aircraft design.
