Has glaring sun or pesky mosquitoes or gathering dusk ever driven you away from your back yard? A spherical concept in outdoor living spaces puts the gazebo to shame.
When the weather is nice, even working next to an open window doesn't cut it for me. I want to be outside, feeling the sun on my skin...and who says I can't answer a few emails while I'm at it? The only problem is that after a few minutes I'm too hot (or too cold), the wind blows my hair in my face, or the sun makes it impossible to see the laptop screen. With a frustrated sigh I inevitably gather my things and slink back inside.
The Garden Pod (or G-Pod) envisions a world where just the right amount of shelter, and the magic of a rotating building, allows us to enjoy our green spaces all day, every day, regardless of the weather.
Available in the United States for the first time in the summer of 2012, the pod is constructed simply from several arcing pieces of responsibly farmed wood. It features a stainless steel roof to reflect heat, as well as a 90º open entrance that welcomes the sights and sounds of your surroundings. The G-Pod's mobile design allows it to be rotated into different positions for a change in view, or to avoid wind, rain, sun glare, and other harsh natural conditions.
The G-Pod is available in several different sizes, from a compact "Garden Seater" to the luxurious "Summerhouse" or large pod "Diner." Each comes with seating and a removable oak or stainless steel table, just in case you'd like to schedule an impromptu backyard camping trip. And the best part is that the footprint of each pod is no bigger than a traditional set of patio furniture.
