Snow Globe Inspired Lodging
A hotel in France is offering its guests the rare opportunity to experience life in a bubble. The bubble rooms are made of recycled plastic, and once inflated, retain their shape thanks to an airlock at the entrance and a silent pump which creates constant pressure. Designer, Pierre Stephane Dumas’s concept was to use minimum energy and minimum material to create maximum comfort and maximum interaction with the environment.
Starting at $700 a night, the portable hotel rooms allow guests to experience nature and its surroundings from the comfort of their room. Outside noises are reduced to a minimum while inside noises are maximized, so the visitors are encouraged to whisper to each other, in order to maintain a peaceful atmosphere.
