Rik Currie, an industrial designer who previously pioneered innovative design at Dutch railway company, Nerderlandse Spoorwegen, is set to launch Anthropods, a new approach in the design and construction of glamping and temporary accommodation at the Glamping Show at NEAC Stoneleigh in September.
Featuring an innovative, trade mark registered leg design and fuselage shape and construction, Anthropods not only look revolutionary but can be sited on uneven ground requiring minimal ground work – just 4 x 600 mm square pads. The pod comes in either 7.2m or 5.3m lengths and is 2.6m wide.
Available in either on-grid or off-grid versions, pods come fully fitted on a flat bed truck and single units do not require planning permission. Once on site they can be easily moved to different seasonal locations.
“We have received very positive interest from both the UK and overseas markets, and have already sold a number of Anthropods offplan to glamping operators before the first prototype has been completed,” said Currie. “The market is growing fast both here and abroad and we believe the time is right to bring futuristic design and manufacturing disciplines to this exciting sector.” www.anthropods.co.uk
