SPUD Group, PAD Studio and designer Stephen Turner have collaborated to create a space that can be tested out as a small shelter to stay in and use as a ‘lab’ for one year. The Exbury Egg, as they have titled it, was constructed with boat building techniques and houses only the essentials. A small stove, shower, desk and bed/hammock are there; while any means of electricity will all come from solar power.
