Speaking of unusual camping experiences, French designer Pierre Stephane Dumas has designed a rather unique luxury tent called the “Bubble Tree”. The tent reminds you of a Globeing Ball that is featured on our sister site BallerToys.com.
The series features transparent and opaque inflatable luxury tents – the Cristal Bubble, Cocooning and the Bubble Lodge. The tents are fully furnished with sofa sets, beds, electric lamps, cushions and the like. It is akin to living in a bed and breakfast hotel, only this time, you decide the location – whether in the mountains or amidst the trees in the dense forest. According to the designer, the tent was designed to afford campers “an unusual experience under the stars” while retaining the pleasure of hotel suite like comforts.
Cristal Bubble is for the people who desire to be seen whereas Cocooning is the walled version and for most of us who prefer to keep our living to ourselves. In both versions, the ceiling is crystal clear and transparent to realize every baller man’s dream of sleeping under the stars, and waking up to the warm sunrays. Bubble Lodge affords you hotel like luxury with additional space for a restroom or kid’s room (note that the other two versions can house two people comfortably)
The tent is easy to assemble and can be set up at a moments notice. It maintains its bubble shape with an airlock at the entry and a noiseless pump that maintains a constant pressure within the walls. The tents are environmentally friendly and are made up of recyclable material. Don’t worry about getting baked when the sun hovers overhead as the material is designed to protect you from the harmful UV rays.
The tents are available all over France for $635 per night on rent. If you would like to own one of these bubblies, you would have to pay a hefty price tag of $11,914. Is it worth it? We’re not sure.
Although you would be guaranteed 360 degree breathtaking scenic views of your camp site, the price seems a wee bit exorbitant. For that price, you would want something more durable than an inflatable live-in Globeing ball (that doesn’t roll). If you’re out in the wild, we’re not sure how safe you’d be from the claws and beaks of your two or four legged friends. Another downside is the sound magnification. Though outside noise is negligible, inside noise is magnified several times over. Would you really want to spend your camping days whispering sweet nothings 24 X 7? You decide.
