3 questions to: Çağla Işin Alemdar (Garden Igloo)

Among the many eye-catchers at spoga+gafa 2013 were the two cosy looking igloos in hall 9. We sat down in one of them and spoke to Çağla Işin Alemdar from Istanbul, who designed the Garden Igloo and is now distributing them from Berlin.

This igloo is so spacious; we can stand upright and walk around. What did you have in mind when designing the Garden Igloo?
Alemdar:
The idea behind the Garden Igloo is to get a multi-purpose dome in the garden that is easy to build and can be used throughout the whole year. There are so many applications and target groups! You can use it to relax during the daytime and there is enough space for a lounger, a table and several seats, so that your friends can join in the evening. It can also be a playground for children and people are even using it as cover for their Jacuzzi in the winter. Also, the Garden Igloo can be used by hobby gardeners as a greenhouse to grow plants or as a garden shed.

You said it can be used all year round. So the igloo can be kept outside no matter how the weather is?
Alemdar:
Yes, depending on which of the exchangeable covers you use it keeps cool in summer and protects from cold in winter. Snow glides off and because of its geodesic shape it can cope with wind speeds of up to 120 km/h. The standard package comes with the Light Canopy Cover and the transparent Winter Garden Cover. Additionally there are other covers available, for example the Green House Cover, the Camouflage Cover or the Mosquito-Net Cover. All materials are 100% recyclable. 

Do you need professional help to put up the Garden Igloo?
Alemdar:
No, you can do it easily on your own! The package comes with a manual and you don’t need any tools for the installation. On our website we have a video that shows two of our guys putting the igloo up in less than 18 minutes.
