Yurt Right

A Crazy Hut from Germany

33a03fd589c132cf78b80d53283e352fJust yesterday we brought up the matter of camping, and the kind of next-generation equipment at your disposal.

Then we looked at the dreary weather outside, and realized you’re also going to need a new form of lodging while braving the wilderness.

Like a yurt, let’s say. Made with BMW levels of engineering.

And here it is: the Zendome, a high-luxury, German-made yurt-dome, available online now.

This is basically the kind of all-purpose outdoor domicile that would result if Walt Disney’s equally-as-talented cousin from Berlin and Philip K. Dick got together to design a futuristic yurt-tent-thingy (we hear that was its original name).

But make no mistake: this hut is large. It uses 161 poles and junction discs to create a floor space of over 300 square feet (translation: you could toss a party in here).

It’s also modular, which means if your friends got their own Zendomes, you could connect them all together, igloo-village-style, to make a dome compound (three words: holiday office party).

And you’ll be happy to hear the outer membrane covering is made using all-purpose material created by Ferrari.

Feel free to park your actual Ferrari inside it.
