Timon Sager’s Flying House

  • Once upon a time, images that represented the future needed to have flying cars in them. Timon Sager now has a different idea of the future, because he knows flying cars already exist. Similar to Pixar’s motion picture Up, where Carl Fredricksen turns his house into an airship using thousands of helium balloons, vehicle and product designer Timon Sager imagines a flying house. With his Wolke 7 project, the Swiss designer resolves one of the main issues of traveling: comfort.

    As My Modern Metropolis explains:

    “The elegantly styled home features multiple decks with several amenities any modern homeowner would want — from a sleek entertainment room to a lavish bedroom. The house also features immense windows that would make every beautiful angle visible. If you have a paralyzing fear of heights, this may not be the home for you, but then again, who could pass up the greatest benefit of traveling in the comfortable confines of one’s home? Wolke 7 would also eliminate the arduous task of packing light and researching for a hotel at your destination. Instead of hectic worrying, flying-homeowners can relax and sail the skies to their favorite vacationing spot.”

    Of course, this is only a concept so far, but I’d recommend visiting Sager’s website to check out a whole series of detailed images of the flying house. Enjoy!
