Studio Puisto Architects was inspired by the coronavirus pandemic to design the “Space of Mind,” a modular, 108-square-foot cabin that can be transported with a crane or helicopter.
The Space of Mind can be ordered as a hotel room, gym, or office.
Studio Puisto is selling the almost $32,270 cabin to any interested individuals, although the firm’s target customers are companies in the hospitality industry.
The Finland-based company is now turning the Space of Mind into a complete “micro-hospitality solution” after receiving a high amount of interest from various hospitality-adjacent companies, it said.
