The roomoon was designed by Rufus Martin as an a-level project at Bryanston School. He continued to develop the spherical tents, and now they can be ordered by anybody around the world. Each tent is handcrafted from a sheet of lightweight yet durable canvas. The roomoon’s design allows it to completely open up to the world outside, and circular windows allow air and light to enter the interior.
The roomoon’s frame is made from stainless steel, and it’s designed to collapse so the tent can be easily transported for camping trips and festivals. Each tent also features a floor made from beautiful and lightweight pine wood. Once a tent has been assembled, it can be hoisted to the heavens using a special pulley system. Pricing for the roomoon starts at £3500, and upgrades include cushions, rugs, beanbags, and integrated LED lights.
According to the website, “Being in the roomoon is like being in a balloon soaring through the tree canopies. You really feel like a part of something much bigger and more important.”
