Mars Lab – G-Pod
Developed in the UK by Mars Lab, and making its debut in the US this summer, the Garden Pod is an interesting twist on luxurious outdoor living. Garden Pods, or G-Pods, are versatile outdoor living space-cabanas that can be customized into winetasting rooms, outdoor dining rooms, or outdoor sleeping/living spaces.
Equipped with unique interior design features and solar panels and materials used in boats, yachts, and other marine equipment materials, G-Pods were created to be long lasting, easy to clean, and fully sustainable.
Constructed from responsibly farmed pine and high-quality weather-resistant materials, the G-Pod fuses modern technology with classic wooden structure. The G-Pod is part of a British line of “Rotating Loungers.” Like all Rotating Loungers, the G-Pod was designed for gathering, dining, lounging, creative space, or simply personal sanctuary.
Ranging in height from 7.5 to 9 feet and width between 7.5 to 11 feet, each G-Pod comes with a table that can be lowered which easily transforms the Lounger into a sleeping space. Its rotating design allows the G-Pods to be rotated into different positions for a change in view, or to avoid wind, rain, or sun glare. With no details spared, the G-Pod was created to infuse a sense of luxury and indoor comfort into nature.
Depending on the size, a medium G-Pod will cost approximately $14,000, while larger models can range between $29,000 and $31,000. The inspiration of the G-Pod’s circular design comes from being among nature. Aside from being pleasing to the eye, a rotating, circular design allows full panoramic views of the surrounding sceneries. Its design also sets the G-Pod apart from other pods on the market. Most pods were square, rectangular, or hexagonal.
The designers’ goal was to “capture the feeling of being outdoors but with the protection of being indoors.” Based on their virtual tour, it looks like they achieved that goal in spades.
