Kyu Che Studio Designed A Portable Living Capsule

Words

San Francisco-based architecture and design studio Kyu Che developed a sustainable and portable capsule unit called ‘Lifepod’. The concept design is based on the Mongolian ger, a round tent covered with skins typically used by nomads, as well as automotive RV technologies. Conceived in 1997, the idea aims to let users escape into a forest, lake or beach in a convenient and environmentally friendly manner.
