Berta Riera Pomés  and Yunwei Zhu have used sustainable materials to create a cute ‘Iglu’ shelter that serves as a quiet place to hide or a fun object to roll around the house. Measuring 2.6 feet in diameter and made from biodegradable rattan  (a durable plant fiber often used for making furniture  or weaving baskets), this eco-friendly cocoon will rock your world.
