Sometimes, all you want is a little space to yourself.

Here to provide that is the Cocoon 1 by Micasa Labs. Though it won’t give you any privacy, the clear sphere lets you relax, read and hang out, great for relaxing inside or admiring the scenery outdoors. Micasa Labs refers to Cocoon as “a new type of furniture that transcends the border between object and space and challenges how we perceive furniture.”

 

The plastic sphere includes modular pillows, storage and a foundation to keep Cocoon from rolling away. The storage modules can be fitted with power for a stove, WiFi and media center.

When outdoors, the Cocoon can also be hung from trees or buildings with a sturdy nylon net, which “enables the user to relax in total solitude, gently swinging in a location of choice.” Sounds like the coolest personal treehouse ever.

The Cocoon 1 is expected to debut in fall of next year for $2,990.
