Human habitations know no limits. These days it’s perfectly normal to find a yurt in your neighbor’s backyard or a teepee in your friend’s living room. An igloo? That would require polar temperatures. Well, not so fast!
The Garden Igloo by the eponymous Berlin-based company thrives in any kind of weather, especially balmy breezes. The multi-purpose, pop-up geodesic dome can function as greenhouse, lounge space for reading and relaxing, winter garden, kids’ play room or as a Jacuzzi cover. We love the way it looks all lit up at night, almost like a landed UFO. It’s the perfect chill out space. All you need is some good tunes.
The lightweight igloo comes with easy, step-by-step instructions and is up in a cinch, without any tools necessary. The base is 10 square meters with a height of 2.2 meters. Extras include a mosquito net and canopy cover. It has excellent ventilation and air flow, and its geodesic shape allows for temperatures inside to stay even and not heat up or drop too much, so one need not worry about steaming or freezing inside this fancy little tent.
Bonus: All materials of this eco-friendly, storm- and waterproof marvel are 100 percent recyclable. They are also rust- and rot-resistant. The igloo will cost you 900 euros with the canopy cover an extra 350 euros.
“With its new improved entrance, Gardenigloo is both weather-proof and rust resistant, 100% recyclable, can be used all year round and is set up without tools in two hours. You will have everything needed to fully assemble a Gardenigloo with the Gardenigloo V2 kit. This included the structural pieces, the transparent cover and the anchorage kit.”
“With its two optional covers, it provides shade when it’s too hot and keeps out the cold while you’re waiting for summer to arrive – as a conservatory, play area for children, storage area, garden shelter, greenhouse, jacuzzi cover or pavilion.”
There’s also a commercial version of the Gardenigloo available, and you might have already seen it around your city in the form of pandemic-safe outdoor dining pods.
