In Diego Caro’s experience, and like many others, the current health crisis has brought anxiety, fear of the future, and turned a home into a place of confinement. “Sometimes, during this confinement, I wish I had found some part of that small ecosystem of tranquillity and naive anguish,” says Diego, “When I was a kid, I used to lock myself up in my room under a blue umbrella and listened to radio programs in foreign languages. That umbrella provided me a little space of discovery and escape, an extra layer of synthetic protection.”

This design is the reinterpretation of a childhood impression of safety and security. Made during the strictest confinement, this prototype is an attempt to propose an instant ME+HABITATION within our homes, even a space for MEDITATION.
