Designed by graduate Tanya Shukstelinsky, from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Cocoon is made of two hanging sheets of fabric. It consists of a sleeping space, stairs, dining area, and even a bathtub.

Residents can navigate the space by clinging to the stitches created inside, moving around to the different zones inside. Dezeen reports that the sheets have stairs and handholds stitched into them.

Shukstelinsky envisions the vertical and narrow dwelling as an affordable housing option in dense, urban spaces. Shukstelinsky describes her project as:

A vertical and narrow dwelling [that] can be used in dense urban spaces with expensive real estate [providing] temporary living spaces for urban nomads.
