Cocoon 1 by Micasa Lab

For a caterpillar, metamorphosis is spent in a concealed, dark space. Cocoon 1, a design experiment from Micasa Lab in Zurich, transforms the concept of a sealed space into an inhabitable, freeing one. The transparent sphere measuring 1.8 meters in diameter is referred to as “furniture you can live in” because of its colorful, building block modules that cater to natural living needs. The sphere comes with Foundation 360 (the number referring to the azimuthal angle) and two modules of Pillow 90, but add-ons including kitchen, water, and storage offer resources for light, cooking, and plumbing. Despite the visual playfulness of Cocoon 1, the potential in this modality of living is serious and tangible, coming to the market in Fall 2013.
