French-based Lumicene is using their signature curved glass window to create modern nature retreats. The Lumipod Prefab Cabin is a 183-square-foot circular shelter. Its frame is made from aluminum and is clad in planks of burnt wood in order to blend into its surroundings. Sitting on four screw piles, the cabin is lightly placed on the terrain for minimal impact on its environment. The interior is lined in plywood and features a bathroom, closet, and a bedroom. Floor-to-ceiling glazing encloses the space, immersing users in the landscape. To seamlessly connect with the wilderness, the window slides open turning the sleeping area into a covered outdoor space. Each Lumipod can be manufactured and delivered in about six months.
