Meet the LumiPod, a new type of prefab cabin designed and manufactured by Lumicene. It’s a small, minimalist and luxurious unit designed to connect users with nature and the company plans to deliver these pods anywhere in the world.
Three different sizes are currently available, ranging from an 18 square meter pod with a limited but chic interior to a 36 square meter unit suited for families. From a design perspective, the LumiPod stands out due to its very open concept. The unit is designed around a huge curve window which can slide along rails and open up the interior, immersing the pod into the beautiful nature surround it. The window is made of curved glass with aluminum frames between two rails and is the focal point of the entire design.
On the outside, the back section of the pod is clad in burned wood while the rest of the facade consists on the huge curved window we just mentioned. The interior is very simple given the limited floor space. The smallest version of the pod includes a bedroom and a bathroom with a shower. Long curtains run along the curved window, blocking the sun and offering privacy when needed. The floor, dividing wall and the furniture are made of solid oak and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The ceiling is lined in fabric which adds an extra touch of luxury to the design as a whole. The LumiPods are designed and manufactured in Lyon and there are plans to create a fully off-the-grid version of the pod over the course of 2020. As it stands this unit can be assembled in only 2 days and the deliveries started in Europe, to be followed by additional regions including the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
