I found this in my Springwise Trends newsletter:
French tourism company Bocages has created a pop-up cabin for four that is designed specifically for stargazing. Each cabin features a transparent dome in the roof, a telescope and a sky observation kit. Just launched this year, CarrÃƒÂ© d’ÃƒÂ©toiles, portable and reversible cube-shaped structures crafted with recyclable wood, have been installed in several holiday spots in France.
“Included in each parquet-floored cabin are a double cabin bed, a sofa bed for two, a kitchenette with refrigerator and hot plates, shower, toilet, wardrobe, electric heating, a bio-ethanol fireplace and cast-iron garden furniture for outside. In addition to modern conveniences like flat-screen TV and connections for MP3, phone and Internet, CarrÃƒÂ© d’ÃƒÂ©toiles cabins also come equipped with bedding and towels, and extra services such as cleaning and breakfast can be added. Black-out blinds, meanwhile, facilitate use of the telescope and stargazing kit.”
Pretty cool, eh?
