The ‘Seedpod’ Is A Pop-Up Micro-Shelter Designed For Remote Jungle Locales

Split amongst a trio of offices in South Africa, the Netherlands, and on the island of Mauritius, Nomadic Resorts is an architectural design and development firm specializing in producing treehouse and tropical hut-inspired shelters for luxury resorts, spas, and glamping outfits. In response to the effect the global pandemic has had on the travel and tourism industries, Nomadic Resorts has created the “Seedpod:” a sustainably-made, pop-up prefabricated dwelling designed to be placed in remote locales.

Comprised of a platform and a spiral wooden chassis wrapped in a rugged “high-tec” recycled fabric, the Seedpod can be placed on legs or suspended from trees, hillsides, or cliffs. Inside, the table lowers down to the level of the bench, allowing users to put down a pad — transforming the booth-like arrangement into a bed. Also known as the “Picnic Pod,” the Seedpod can be placed virtually anywhere, as it’s incredibly lightweight, and can be erected without any machinery or heavy equipment — only using man-power to set up in just a matter of hours. Computer simulations also show the shape of the pods is good to withstand wind speeds as high as 75mph. Check out the Nomadic Resorts website for more info.
