This Mobile Micro 'Blob' Has All the Comforts of Home

When Belgian architectural firm dmvA—no strangers to oddball projects—came up against harsh local building regulations while building a home-office extension, they did what anyone would do: they built a giant white bean. Naturally. The Blob vB3, as it's been unceremoniously named, is mobile and, at just 215 square feet, micro—double trendiness points there—but packs a lot of punch for such a small space, as micro homes manage to do. Inside is a bathroom, kitchen, bed, plenty of storage, and even a fold-out wing that acts as a make-shift porch.

The structure, which took 18 months to complete, has a sturdy timber frame covered with polyester that's been sanded down to give it its, well, egg-like exterior. Though it has no windows, the sides flare out to let sunlight in. The firm suggests it be used as a home office, garden house, or guest bedroom, but for now, it's on display at the Verbeke Art Foundation in Belgium. Do have a look at more photos over on Design Boom.
