Looking for some time off but can’t be bothered to get into your car or book a flight? That’s where The Escape Pod enters the picture. Created by furniture design studio Podmakers, this ellipsoid pod made of birch and European oak is an ideal place to hunker down to work, meditate, socialise or sleep — and you can have it installed in your very own backyard.

Aside from the door that opens aircraft-style and its woodburner, electrics and insulation, it’s fully customisable to suit your needs and space requirements — they’ll displace windows, or bend to the whims of your choice furnishings and fittings. The entire pod is crafted in the and delivered to your place of choice via a crane. More details on this amazing project here.
