The original aim of the Ecocapsule project was a task elaboration for Andes Sprout Society 2009 competition. Even though the project did not win, due to a high public interest it was decided to bring it to life. The first prototype was smaller and had a retro look. In 2018, the 2nd model was designed – Ecocapsule ORIGINAL, which was improved in terms of design, functionality, and possibilities of use. However, the biggest changes were hidden beneath the surface – the solution of the electrical water supply system. In 2019, serial production of the Ecocapsule ORIGINAL – smart, self-sustainable micro-unit, which utilizes solar and wind energy and filters the collected water from a natural source, into clean water was successfully launched. It allows an off-grid accommodation in remote locations while maintaining a high level of comfort. The unique giant egg-like design minimizes energy losses and hollow walls filled with polyurethane foam protect against inhospitable weather.
