Constructed from concrete, glass and metallic material, D-Pod is “based on the concept of lightness,” as Grafito Design Studio puts it, “where separation from the ground is sought and lifted; its internal functional modules also use this concept of “separation” of floor and ceiling. In fact, the single-volume nature of the D-Pod makes walls or dividers unnecessary. In an effort to create an interior of spatial fluidity, the “rooms” inside the D-Pod come together without the additional obstacle of walls or physical boundaries. With transparent floor-to-ceiling walls surrounding the entirety of the D-Pod, the interior of the housing expands visual space, dissolving the only walls of the D-Pod into the surrounding environment.
