Sustainisia: curvaceous shedworking

There's not a lot of detail on the web site of Oakland-based Sustainisia about what they call the 'work pod' but the design is really something special, the work of architect Tom Biggs and furniture maker Tony Carr which is aimed squarely at the garden office market in the USA. Here's what the East Bay Express says about it:
Biggs first started playing around with the concept as his client base dwindled due to the recession, leaving him with an excess of unexpected free time. He found inspiration when he considered the many people he knew who were working from home in pretty dismal conditions, including one attorney friend who worked in a backyard Tuff Shed.
It features French doors, solar panels in the roof, tip top insulation, hidden cabinets, folddown tables, benches and beds, even a way of turning it into a home theatre/cinema space with surround sound.

And of course that lovely guitar-like curve...
