Living in a Bubble


Swiss designers have invented a human-sized bubble, described as a ‘place of retreat’ for people who want a bit of peace but don’t want to be completely out of touch.

The transparent globes made by Swiss designers Micasa Lab can be used in a room, outside, attached to the ceiling – or even put in water. A net enables it to be hung in trees, on buildings, or in a cluster of other cocoons.

Nesting: A giant net can be used to hang the Cocoon 1 from a tree to allow users to find peace in nature

Relaxation: The orbs can be transported to secluded spots to offer some small protection against the elements

Child’s play: The simple design, primary colours and building block style modules are reminiscent of children’s toys
