Cocoon home

What is basically a giant pillow case, the suitably named Cocoon home is made from two sheets of fabric and includes a sleeping space, steps, a table and even a bathtub.

It was designed by Tanya Shukstelinsky, a student from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, who envisions her prototype being utilized in dense urban areas as an inexpensive alternative to pricey real estate properties.

“I think, it is definitely possible to live in such construction,” Shukstelinsky told Fast Company. “It is light, flexible, portable, doesn’t need much space. I think it can be real space for temporary staying.”

But alas, the Cocoon concept is not ready for mass production. Still, any seamstress or seamster worth their salt could surely make one for themselves. Please check with your local government to ensure a building permit is not required to hang it from a lamp post.
