Transparent tent

They look and feel more like giant goldfish bowls, these latest inventions designed by French designer Pierre Stephane Dumasare, actually totally see-through inflatable tents.

The bizarre transparent structures are designed to get people as close to nature as possible, and to offer incredible panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

Launched this year, the structures can be now be hired out at sites across France for around £400 pounds a night.

French designer Pierre Stephane Dumas said his ‘BubbleTree’ creations are ‘unusual huts for unusual nights’.
‘Having a night under the stars or seeing the sun rise and set is not something that many people experience anymore. A normal tent or camper van means people miss out on these things. So I designed this eccentric shelter with the aim of offering an unusual experience under the stars while keeping all the comfort of a bedroom suite.
The ceiling of the bubble has the Milky Way, guests will be able to enjoy this as well as the extraordinary light variation of the sunset and sunrise.’
