Modern Spherical Tent Floats Among the Trees

Animals nestle among the trees so why shouldn’t we? This Cocoon Tree Tent is an alternative to the boring camping setup or awkward hammocks to which you may be accustomed. The sphere structure is made out of aluminum and covered with a resistant tarpaulin, with a small door for entry. With the attached rope system, it is designed for many versions of set-up, including suspended from any group of trees and secured by nets, attached to a floating ring, floating on a platform, and placed on the ground with its adaptable feet.

Once set up, the Cocoon Tree Tent will make every camping experience a lot more luxurious. The interior space provides a well-ventilated shelter in which campers can sleep or beach-goers can find relief from the hot rays of sun. The approximately 10-foot circular bed features a custom duvet and can fit 2 people comfortably. The website describes this futuristic tent as “the modern version of a cabin in a tree,” and says, “In harmony with nature, you will reconnect with sensations forgotten since the modern world consumes us today.”
