Treetent

Created for “tree-huggers”, Dutch designer Dré Wapenaar thought up this singular construction in 1998 for British activists so they could sleep among the branches of trees they were trying to save.
The Treetent is made of steel, canvas and plywood and measures 15 feet high by nearly 9 feet in diameter. Don’t let the picture fool you, the Treetent is large enough to fit an entire family. It’s currently on exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York show called “SAFE: Design Takes On Risk.”
