“The world is a bubble” declared Saint Augustine. Seventeen centuries later, the patron saint would surely be a huge fan of the portable plastic offerings from Bubble Tree.
The french design and manufacturing company sells bubble products that they describe as “Unusual huts for unusual nights.” Spot Cool Stuff would characterize them more as glorified tents.
这家法国设计和生产商出售泡泡产品，他们称之为“为不平凡之夜准备的不平凡小屋”。Spot Cool Stuff称之为改良型帐篷。
Bubble Tree has two basic types of bubbles to choose from. The Bubble Room has a translucent
bottom half that provides bubble dwellers with a modicum
of privacy. The Cristal Bubble is entirely see through. The floor of the CristalBubble is transparent too (if you don’t install the optional wood floor), so you can place one at a beach edge and watch waves lap beneath you.
Both bubble types have a floor diameter of about 4 meters (13 feet). That provides more than enough interior room to for five people to have a picnic, or for one really cynical
person to comfortably isolate themselves from the outside world. For more space, a bubble can be combined with a smaller bubble to create a BubbleLodge or with another full-sized bubble to make a GrandLodge.
The bubbles manage to hold the shape of, well, a bubble thanks to an electric turbine
that keeps the structure optimally inflated
. The blower
is silent and runs the air through a filter that supposedly removes all bugs, moisture and allergens
. That fresh air, along with the bubble’s ultraviolet-proof plastic, helps moderate temperatures and keeps the greenhouse effect in check. Altogether, life inside a bubble is pretty sweet.
What’s less sweet is the price. A CristalBubble with a removable
wood floor, air turbine and carry case will set you back €7796. If you have any money left over, combine your bubble with a portable wood-burning spa for the ultimate glamping—glamorous camping—experience.
