Treehouses are one of those childhood obsessions that never lose their appeal for many people, even after making their way into adulthood. Unfortunately, society frowns upon grown-ups messing around in treehouses, but Cacoon could possibly make the form factor acceptable for everyone, regardless of their age or level of maturity.

In truth, Cacoon is more than just a treehouse substitute, with elements of swing chair, hammock, and hanging garden seat thrown in for good measure. Originally designed to be a part of the luxury spa at the Scarlet Hotel in Cornwall, U.K., Cacoon has now been given a life of its own thanks to a team of professional sail makers.

The Cacoon design was influenced by the weaver bird's hanging nest, which provides the bird with a safe and secure bolt hole away from predators. Similarly, Cacoon offers a secluded personal space allowing individuals to get away from everything while still being aware of their immediate surroundings.

Cacoon is designed to hang from a single point, and is suitable for use both indoors and out. The fabric used is strong, weatherproof, and machine-washable and makes the Cacoon small and light enough to carry. The single Cacoon weighs approx 5 kg (11 lbs), is 1.5 meters (4.9 ft) in diameter, and packs down to 20 cm by 70 cm (8 by 28 in), the double Cacoon weighs approx 6 kg (13 lbs), is 1.8 meters (5.9 ft) in diameter, and packs down to 20 cm by 80 cm (8 by 31 in). Both are capable of holding up to 200 kg (440 lbs).

Cacoon is produced by U.K.-based designers Hang-in-out, and is available in five colors: natural white, leaf green, orange mango, sky blue, and chilli red. The single Cacoon is priced at £250 (US$380), while the double Cacoon is priced at £350 (US$530).

Theres been alot of these kinda products over the last few years, normaly i'd say its kinda over priced but, i think it looks pretty good.
I like the picture of it hanging out over the water, i could picture myself chilling in one of those, or possible out in the forest in the right context.
But i can't help but think that it probably costs them under 100$ to make and its kinda a steep price probably because the people who would buy these are also the kinda people willing to spend more then something could be worth.

i'd even hang it in my room :-)

It's all very good and innovative. There can innumerable variants. May be next model may have a flap cover for protection against elements as and when necessary. and on lines of hammock , it may also be made suitable for full length , i.e., plus 1.8 m for taking a nap . Another one can be elliptical shape in place of circular . Good luck and cheers for the new product.

Neat but FAR too expensive!

Neat, when thinking about the price, keep in mind, it' not made of the same materials, or stitched the same way, in the thousands like a tent for $50. at a Wallmart. "... thanks to a team of professional sail makers ... Both are capable of holding up to 200 kg (440 lbs). " Sails ain't stitched together bedsheets, they are expensive items. If you got a good place to hang one, I think it's a good buy. If indoors, you could embelish the floor to make it even more interesting.

Lower the price & boost sales, awesome. Radical. Must for many locales: Hotels, Resorts, homes, camping sites

Or I could setup my one person tent in my hammock... ;)

Looks great, mainly due to simplicity of design.
Not sure how to prevent ants from invading your space, although the single attachment point would be easier to protect than the floor of a tent, for example.
Maybe a cleverly designed device at the top to stop insects from making it their home?

An internal single or double flap system (1 screen flap from the left, 1 opaque flap from the right) at the door would be a definite improvement, especially for longer stays and keeping flying creatures at bay. The flaps would be held open by Velcro and also sealed by Velcro when put to use. A small plastic window or two (also opened and closed with Velcro) would help avoid claustrophobia, give environmental awareness, and allow better air circulation and improve enjoyment via breezes when open. Of course, these mods could easily be added by consumers with nominal skill, but such options manufactured-in could be a "deluxe" model for the manufacturer and a great option for buyers.

Reminds me of the hammocks with attached mosquito screen issued to U.S. troops in the Pacific during WWII. They were OK to use outside of a war zone but not anywhere there might be Japanese troops. They would sneak into camp at night to do mischief and if they found you in one, they would stick a bayonet up into your back and that would be it for you. Most guys slept on the ground with a .45 in hand on their chest. Even on a dark night you could see someone looming over you and pop 'em. One never got up to walk around at night, even to urinate.
