The Sustainsia Cocoon: A Backyard Home Office

Lifework

Here’s a new take on the backyard home office. It’s called the Sustainsia Cocoon and is 8′ by 12′ modular prefab with a lovely curvy interior, all designed "to be the ideal workspace for people who telecommute."

Biggs teamed with furniture maker, and Yoga instructor, Tony Carr, to add some furniture touches that add functionality and style to the furniture elements. The unit design holds a bench, that can pull out into a futon bed. It has unique, overhead, lift-open cabinets whose doors continue the curved contour of the ceiling. In addition, a work surface can be added to the space via the Murphy Table unit, which was inspired by some of the tables found on sailboats. The leaves and support of the table simply fold out of the wall, and in less than a minute, voila!, you have a conference table, or dining table ready to use.
