Relaxing Country Living in Micasa Lab's Cocoon

The Cocoon is the perfect place to read in the rain or relax in a scenic countryside location. Imagine being outside in any sort of weather without having to worry about getting wet or cold. The Cocoon 1 is the perfect place to retreat to whenever you need a few moments to yourself. This plastic leisure bubble is portable, hangable, waterproof, and is functional for any off-grid situation. Whether you are living in the country or just want your little self-contained bubble to lounge in now and again, the Cocoon 1 gives you the perfect space to sit back, relax, read a book, and even make a cup of tea.



Although you probably would not want to live in the Cocoon 1 all day long, the pod could provide you with a quiet escape on those hectic afternoons. For anyone living off the grid, this bubble could work well as an accessory, serve as a mobile annex room and provide you with shelter, battery power, and, if you choose the kitchen module, a sink and a tiny stove. There is also a workspace Cocoon module where you can easily install a hard drive and a Wi-Fi router, just in case you would like a quiet place to work. Or perhaps you would like one of each? That way you have a private space to work and take in the view. The Cocoon also comes with some storage space and bright-coloured cushion blocks that you can arrange in several different ways to form chairs, sofas, and backrests.

You can also hang your plastic Cocoon room from a tree using a net, and the people who invented it at Micasa Lab are currently working on the way to float it on water. For anyone that is living out in the country and has the property to have extra buildings and pods, it could be a dream to own two or three of these bubble pods, each with a different purpose. You could have your off-grid kitchen in the garden, an off-grid sleeping space in the tree, and an off-grid workspace beside the lake. Perhaps the folks at Micasa Lab they will eventually make a greenhouse Cocoon as well, so you can grow your food throughout the year. Although the Cocoon weighs 220 pounds and stands at six feet cross when it’s set up, it’s collapsible and easy to move wherever needed.



The mastermind behind the tiny house building Cocoon 1 is Per Ericsson of Micasa Lab, based in Zurich, Switzerland. Ericson lived in a tiny house building and had wanted to create a quiet spot where he could relax, catch his breath, and read. He wanted to design something that could be set up just about anywhere and to create a space within existing spaces, as he describes it. The Cocoon 1 tiny house building is surprisingly sound-proof, which almost makes you feel like you’re in a protected womb space while seated inside. At the same time, the transparency of the tiny house building allows for you to watch and wonder at all the world around you while still protected within the tiny self-contained space. With the Cocoon 1 tiny house building, it’s easy to be in the world but not of it. While the Cocoon is perfect for country living, you could also use it in the city. In a city, you could easily take the Cocoon 1 with you to the park, or set it up in a small backyard. In the country, you can set it up just about anywhere and use it as a place to quietly enjoy nature.
