Berta Riera Pomés [1] 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 [2] (a durable plant fiber often used for making furniture [3] or weaving baskets), this eco-friendly cocoon will rock your world.
