At least, growing up on a peninsula, that’s what I dreamed of being able to do. Luckily, designer Pierre Stephane Dumas has made that dream possible with his BubbleTree line of tent architecture. There’s the basic, transparent CristalBubble for a simple night under the stars, or the partially opaque BubbleRoom if you’re looking for a little more privacy. Additionally, Dumas has created the 2-room BubbleLodge for campers with children, or those who just want the luxury of more space.
The CristalBubble and BubbleRoom are both four meters across, and all models come with a wood floor. The bubbles are kept inflated by a special blower that can bring in fresh air, reduce dust and pollen, and act as air-conditioning. Dumas’ aim is to use minimum energy and materials and allow for maximum comfort and interaction with the environment. Sounds fun to me!
