Greetings from Greece! 🙂
Coco-Mat, the Athens based all natural mattress brand, has collaborated with Cocoon Modules, the container architecture start-up, to design a modular and environmentally friendly prototype of a modern dwelling. The structure has been built on coco-mat’s headquarters in Kifissia, Greece and remains open to the public.
The prototype features significant advantages such as having manufacturing up to 50% lower cost compared to a conventional construction, ‘smart’ low technology systems for day-to-day needs, and all natural sustainably designed furniture. The prototype has also been designed to maximize comfort, with brightly lit social areas providing views to the surrounding garden. the private sleeping quarters feature coco-mat‘s high quality mattresses.
‘Our modules are more than 15% cheaper than the prefabricated construction in Greece and 30% cheaper than the traditional,’ explains the design team at cocoon modules. ‘They can be built within weeks in designated industrial spaces and can then be transported and placed on site. By using the modularity of the container we create ergonomic spaces of great design that can be expanded as legos do‘.
The structures can be built within weeks in designated industrial spaces with the manufacturing costs up to 50% less than conventional construction. By using the modularity of the container the design team created spaces that could be expanded as legos.
The container features brightly lit and open spaces. The interiors were furnished with coco-mat’s line of sustainable and organic furniture. Smart low technology systems have been implemented for day-to-day needs. The private sleeping quarters feature coco-mat’s high quality mattresses.
