Insulate Your Brain and Body in This Sealed Off Mini-Room

If you're unfortunate enough to live in a region cursed with bitter winters (I know I am!), you know the pain of keeping your pad heated. One solution? Build an insulated room within a room to stay focused and toasty.

German architectural firm Davidson Rafailidis created this prototype, constructed out of plastic and wood, that hooks up directly to a window for both light and warmth. Probably not a great space for the claustrophobes out there, but might make for an excellent place to get some work done without having to put on a sweater. Or hide some bodies. Y'know, whatever's your thing.

That would be more of a trippy room than an insular room for me, it would probably be problematic due to all the animals I have around as well, however for an artist or writer or anyone who has quiet and wants to work i could see that being rather useful

c-dawg said...

i would buy one but it looks so fragile!

gamefreak3335 said...

haha thats cool

Drackar said...

I've been doing that for years.

Admittedly, in more functional rectangle shapes.

sildude said...

Interesting concept. Though yes, not very comfortable if you dislike cramped spaces.

Siryn said...

That sure is a trippy room. For now, i won't put that in my house, ever. But since it's just a prototype i can see the possibilities.

weird looking thing

I think it would be cool, but my kids would destroy it in under a week.

ThePanther said...

Craziest room I've ever seen O_o

GreatHillBand said...

it looks like brain damage

Ryukai said...

I would love a place like this ;_;

zman said...

good for doing homework

cancerbeaverz said...

Very interesting!

Von Biohazard said...

Oh god, what?
Camping indoors.

CS said...

Wow, that looks neat.

I bet it would feel super closed-in, though.

AnbuJustin said...

this looks cool, would be scary as hell to be in though when its night time.

I love the ingenuity people show, if they're only given the opportunity. And then it makes me sad that the overwhelming majority of them won't get that say.

Lovely content mate, and might come in handy on my travels!

I would love this little thing. I hope it won't break easy.

Mutefox said...

That's very clever. Of course, the best thing to do is insulate one's entire house, but that can be expensive if you don't know how to do it yourself.

ramrod np
its made by germans u know high quality, accurate and stuff :)

Stav88os said...

Cool story bro!;)

Joscelin said...

This is brilliant! I think the design looks quite nice too

ITS SHAUN'DRE said...

This is totally the adult equivalent to building a fort with chairs and sheets.

Anonymous College Student said...

I want one so bad.

Persuasive Puppy said...

woah lol too bad it's hot here 24/7

MistahDrama said...

thats quite interesting lol im sure that some potheads would make it their "smoke concentration" room haha

comradejoker.blogspot.com/ said...

Wow, very clever idea bro

Gordon said...

I want one O_O

Beavz0r said...

That looks crazy. Makes sense, really, but still isn't... well, very practical in it's application.

Positive Tension said...

looks pretty trippy. is there an approximate price for this?

Tapier said...

... JUST HOW MANY BODIES ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

Also it would be cool if there was a mini room that could stay cool in hot places.

Entropy said...

Awesome! Like the grown-up version of making a castle out of pillows :D

Naj said...

that thing looks as if it will collapse with a slight push.

Katie Greene said...

i would build one of those to take chicks to and bang them. and if they didn't come willingly, i'd consider using date raep drugs.

Rorschach Redemption said...

Plus you could get drunk and totally tear out of it like that scene from Fire In The Sky when he wakes up in the alien pod.

KillerKun said...

build it and keep the window open... what would happen?

Kikino said...

lol I'm so making one

That Which Haunts said...

That is actually pretty aesthetically pleasing. It seems more like a hermit-hole for an introvert than anything, which I do not mind.

Collegiate Preps said...

weird

Owtwem said...

It seems like a really good idea, but those prototypes look pretty ugly in my opinion. But still, great idea!

Keki said...

I could use one.. so I don't get distracted from doing homework..

Advantage-player said...

ooo gosh.. That room looks scary to me...

iMonei said...

looks weird

Nice post brah!

ShredGuitar said...

Very nice.

Jemz said...

I need one!! Looking at the way it is built, I might do it y myself!

S!

thansk

WildBoar said...

Wow, this is really interesting. Unfortunately I live in the desert so this is kinda irrelevant. Maybe I could hook it up to my refrigerator?

Applelove said...

This would eat up a lot of space. I have enough room in my room to stand up, walk in a circle, and sit down.

HiFi said...

Where do you find these things. Nice!
