Design group Luminair recently unveiled their first shelters, fantastical suspended Tree Tents. The product of three years’ work, Tree Tents provide an intriguing model for sustainable wildlife housing that enables a non-invasive solution for campers and forest service personnel.
In fulfilling childhood fantasies and Tarzan complexes, Tree Tents also manage to look like space age survival pods. The spherical design has a two-fold purpose: to provide even load distribution for the suspension system and allow for natural rain runoff. Steam-bent green ash and aluminum provide eye-catching shape and structural integrity when suspended in the canopy.
