EDEN Luxury Portable Suite was designed by Verona-born architect Michele Perlini, who specialises in sustainable, low-energy-consumption architecture and design.
“A cell that produces more energy that it consumes, a module that can be transported to the most stunning locations in the world, a design based around capturing nature and bringing it inside,” is how Perlini describes EDEN, his revolutionary concept suite manufactured by Xlam Dolomiti. The completely self-sufficient, solar-powered suite requires no cabling whatsoever and is easy to transport via road or helicopter.
The basic version is 6x3m, while there are also 9x3m and 12x3m versions which accommodate not only two bedrooms and a living area, but also a sauna and Turkish bath, delivering luxury with environmental sustainability. As regards the interiors, Perlini opted for a bed with attached table, a wellness and shower area with chromotherapy systems finished in natural travertine (featuring a Kaldewei shower tray), a small walk-in closet and a kitchenette with fridge and induction hob. There is also a service area with Agape sink, a free-standing bath tub in Cristalplant with Dornbracht fittings and Geberit AquaClean, an innovative bathroom feature combining a toilet and bidet in one piece of kit.
The outside of the suite is clad with strips of natural larch wood from controlled forests, while the ambience inside is kept relaxed and soothing thanks to the use of materials such as natural maple, Ceramica Sant’Agostino flooring in neutral tones and warm, soft Flor lighting, with LED profiles by Luce Design.
The suite also features cutting-edge air-conditioning and ventilation systems, high-end solar-powered electrical systems and a water cistern, which come together to make EDEN a completely self-sufficient creation.
