The pods, commissioned by Manz Wine Estate Cape Town, were designed with the specific purpose of reducing harmful light wavelengths and controlling and editing visual hallucinations and mirages induced by exhaustion and high altitude. They would provide a self-contained environment and create a meditative space that allows climbers to relax and regroup before continuing the climb.

The structures are designed to be made from carbon fiber-reinforced polymer that is flexible and strong at the same time. The wooden rib walkway, columns and horizontal steel foundations support most of the structure’s weight. The pods are glazed in holographic filtered compound glass and feature a prism louver system.
