This floating egg lying on a small river flowing south through the New Forest in the county of Hampshire is a self-sustaining, energy efficient workspace where British artist Stephen Turner lives for a full year. »The Exbury Egg«, which was launched towards the end of last month, will be Turner’s laboratory, as he studies and looks for inspiration in the rise and fall of the waters, in an attempt to better understand our environment. The design was inspired by the nesting seabirds on the shore. The interior is a simple space with a hammock, a small stove, a desk and a wet room. Take a tour inside the cabin.
