LUMISHELL

LumiShell

A cocoon in the wilderness | 2017

With LUMICENE, reversible window concept | Thibaut Miossec, indoor render | more infos & order : lumi-shell.com


LumiShell is a prefab housing module intended to be implanted in the heart of Nature.
It is a comfortable cocoon that offers the sensitive experience of being transplanted in the heart of nature while enjoying the inside confort. This project was born from my encounter with Lumicene, a budding firm developing a concept of curved sliding windows.
Our fruitful collaboration fostered this small-sized accommodation highlighted by two Lumicenes, respectively housing a livingroom and a bedroom.
The whole is wrapped with a protective aluminium skin, which appears as folding and shrinking to seemingly recover the original fœtal position.

Have your breakfast in a sofa transplanted into the heart of the landscape.
Awake amidst vast scapes, so comfy under your quilt.

You never lose touch with the spectacle of Nature through reflections and transparencies.
