Baobed’s oval shape was inspired by exotic fruit that dangles from the branches of baobab trees, known as the “tree of life,” characteristic of African landscapes.

The cozy retreat is meant to provide a safe place for sleeping and relaxation at night to those who like exploring exotic landscapes during the day. Versatile and easily transported, the treehouse allows its users to feel closer to nature.

The small capsule is approximately 13 feet long and 6.5 feet wide and weighs 992 pounds when empty. The shell, a sandwich UV resistant structure, can be easily transported on a trailer. It can be ordered fully outfitted with mattresses and bedding, while additional features include a small platform from which the interior can be accessed, suspension kit, support for floor installation, mosquito nets, indoor and outdoor decoration and storage pockets.
