LUMINAIR TREE TENTS
It's been a great start to our Tree Tent venture this year with our first ever TT build being followed for George Clarke's Amazing Spaces series on Channel 4. George explores the extraordinary world of small builds, where people turn tiny spaces into the most incredible places to live, work and play. He even tries making one of his own.
Tree Tents are lightweight, hybrid aluminium and steam bent, green ash static airframes. They enable minimal impact living in the trees. The spherical structure is encompassed by a 16oz / 455gsm rot and waterproofed 100% cotton canvas tailoured by The Lindstrand hot air balloon factory famed for their earth and space bound Technical fabric structures, airships and balloon projects. See the Tree Tent micro site here for more information.
