In Scandinavia, the warmth of summer is fleeting, so spending time in the great outdoors when the weather makes due is something of a regional passion. Designed as a private escape for sea-loving Swedish brothers, this floating modern cabin is one such expression of this passion, and was built by local prefab manufacturers Kenjo. Made of locally-sourced spruce and equipped with sliding doors for easy indoor-outdoor access, the floating room is entirely powered by a solar panel array on its roof. Though it can be docked at a port, the real fun begins when it's out on a lake, an outboard motor propelling it along.
