White pod by Sofia de Meyer

[…] Whitepod is an award-winning Swiss eco-tourism company that maintains heir geodesic hotel “rooms,” which can each sleep four people, overlooking Lake Geneva. Founder Sofia de Meyer hopes that the low-profile, white-in-winter, green-in-summer domes will intrude less on the experience of the landscape than permanent guest cottages would.

Whitepod is predicated on the idea that luxury design and sustainability are not mutually exclusive – that in fact, they can inform and engage each other. Materials are locally sourced, and wood and water is obtained through socially responsible channels – the company markets itself as a hotel experience for a new breed of tourist.
