Archipod: Apple store inside, pinecone outside
Looking for a home office orb that wouldn't look out of place in your back yard? Consider the Archipod, make in the U.K.
If you want your backyard home office orb to be minimalist and clean on the inside but woodsy and natural on the outside, the Archipod is the pod for you.
There's nothing wrong with wanting your sanctuary to take the form of a futuristic pod. But you have to be willing to find one that doesn't disrupt your back yard's harmony with nature. The Archipod, like a coconut, is smooth and white on the inside and brown and rugged on the outside.
Created in the U.K., the Archipod was conceived out of "frustration at the commuting lifestyle, with its attendant road congestion, air and noise pollution, road rage, running costs and time loss."
Indeed, if you're looking for a home office that will make you feel like you're several light-years away from modern society and its discontents, head over to Archipod's Web site and prepare to open the pod bay doors.
