IO House is a Stockholm-based manufacturer of luxury off-grid homes, and their maiden project is called The Space. It’s a 60 square meter big mobile home that can be transferred and installed anywhere you like it. And there’s no need to worry about the hassle of finding nearby electricity or water resources — the house has a private power supply and an internet connection, and the water and sewage tanks are big enough to last for two weeks for two people. The Space is equipped to the teeth with a dishwasher, gas stove, refrigerator, and washing machine. The home is also entirely controlled by a smartphone app, that keeps you connected to the house at all times.
— We like to think of it as a luxurious yacht that you can permanently live in and take anywhere you like – complete flexibility with all the comfort, says Mario Ojalo, CEO of IO House.
Once you’ve decided where to put the mobile home, be it next to your favourite golf course or perhaps some friends’ immobile summer house, IO House helps to arrange a transfer by truck. The Space can get mounted on a regular freight truck and is suitable for delivery by road up to 90 km/h.
The home was designed and developed with Scandinavian design values as a cornerstone, and made built out of organic, non-synthetic materials. The interior is made out of a mix of wood, metal and glass which makes for a modern feel.
— We have aimed to maximize comfort and privacy at the same time. At IO House we know how important it is to spend time with yourself, your loved ones and switch off from everyday troubles. Hence, we wanted to create a home, where everyone could just relax and enjoy the view, adds Mario Ojalo.
