It took Luminair three years to design and implement the construction of a spherical tent (Luminair’s Tree Tent), anchored between the trees. As the authors themselves note, the first airships and gliders inspired them to create a tent of this shape. Its diameter is 3 meters, it can comfortably accommodate 2 adults inside.

In addition, Luminair’s Tree Tent has a wood-burning stove and a water tank. Electricity is generated by solar panels.
