The confined space is the bottom line when it comes to the human need for shelter, for survival against nature, for solitude among people or against people or for defining the different functions in our lives. Spaces work on all levels, rooms, houses, countries or worlds. The spaces differs but is ever-present. Cocoon is a piece of furniture that’s define a new space.

It’s an ongoing research project that are aiming to create new spaces.
By adding different modules, the functions of the Cocoon 1 can be changed, for example adding sleeping modules or storage modules. The variety of modules and therefore functions is vast, there are even modules designed to enable basic cooking inside the Cocoon 1. Batteries not only allow the stove to operate, but also power Wi-Fi and the media module. It is spacious enough to create a room, but not so large that it will not fit into one. The Cocoon 1 comes with a set of attachments offering a variety of placing – be it on the floor, elevated or attached to the ceiling.
The Cocoon 1 is completely transparent and measures 180 cm in diameter.
An addition is the net. When using the Cocoon 1 outdoors, the net enables the Cocoon 1 to be hung in trees, on buildings or even as a cluster of other Cocoons.
