Opera

Not quite a tent, or a caravan or a motor home, Opera, so called because of it’s resemblance to Sydney Opera House, is a mobile holiday home that allows you to stay in the most beautiful places, but with the luxury of a wine cabinet, warm-air heating, espresso bar and an enclosed teak veranda.

Opera

Designed by Belgian architect Axel Enthoven, this nomadic, contemporary living tent, handmade and fitted out with materials including hardwood, stainless steel and leather, offers the quality of a luxury yacht combined with the outdoor feeling of camping under canvas.

Trigger Points

Trigger Point mouldings by haptic design consultants, Touchy Feely, are rounded fibrous plaster forms that can be integrated into a wall surface. As suggestive protrusions, the mouldings encourage heightened, physical interactions between bodies and architectural surfaces, and suggest that buildings can perform, or intimate towards the necessary work of massage therapists.

Trigger Points

Heating elements inserted into the backs of the plaster protrusions warm the forms to body temperature and assist in muscle tension relief. As warmed wall areas, the protrusions create a gentle threshold between body and building.
