Mirrorcube is a 4x4x4 metre cube covered in mirrored glass that can be suspended from the trunk of a tree to accommodate two people. It is one of six tree houses that form the Treehotel in Harads, northern Sweden. Treehotel founder Kent Lindvall says the decision to launch the product is a response to interest from investors and international celebrities. The product can be ordered directly from Treehotel and retails at approximately €275,000, excluding transportation costs.
The design was extremely popular with Dezeen readers (see the story here) and has been shortlisted in the Holiday category for this year's World Architecture Festival awards. It's also included in the Dezeen Book of Ideas, which you can buy here for just £12.
