This fantastic self-sustaining boat is called the Exbury Egg, and is perfect for use as an at-home office, or a floating cabin. This clever contraption gets its name from its interesting egg-like shape and is currently being used by artist and designer Stephen Turner as a research station.

All of the technology on this egg-shaped vessel is solar powered, which makes this little boat all the more environmentally friendly. This fantastic wooden workspace is socially conscious, and artist Stephen Turner hopes to set an example for his fellow man by offering up a cleaner, more eco-friendly way to live.

While the shape is certainly unusual and appealing, the environmentally responsible boat design is ultimately what makes this floating egg ship so impressive. Complete with a shower, hanging hammock and multiple desk surfaces, the exbury egg makes self-sustaining workspaces seem like a great option.
