If you’re looking for a green way to spend the night in the great outdoors, try cozying up in one of Luminair’s Tree Tents. The Tree Tent is a camping shelter made of an aluminum and green ash static airframe that is suspended in the canopy via rigging. A waterproof cotton skin provides relief from the elements while a wool lining on the inside keeps you warm.

Tree Tents were born after more than three years of work and research on energy-efficient and lightweight shelter systems. The goal was to produce something that was sustainable and made of recycled materials. Whether you're looking to reduce your carbon footprint in the wilderness or a new secret hideout, there are a variety of Tree Tent variants to suit your needs. A standard Tree Tent set up will cost £8,000. Luminair offers optional installations of renewable electricity, a wood stove and water.
