BERLIN, January 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
- The Garden Igloo is all these things. Convertible, robust and mobile.
The Garden Igloo is both weatherproof and corrosion resistant, indestructible, 100% recyclable, suitable for use whatever the season, can be set up in 60 minutes and - it also looks good.
From Turkey via Germany and England to Norway, it protects plants in the winter from frost, strong winds and heavy layers of snow. In spring, it encourages the first shoots of growth and in summer keeps out UV rays or provides shelter from showers.
With its two seasonal covers, it provides shade when it's too hot and keeps out the cold while you're waiting for summer to arrive - as a play area for children, storage area, garden shelter, greenhouse, jacuzzi cover or pavilion.
It all began in a small studio in Istanbul. For two years, Cagla Isin Alemdar worked meticulously and experimented with different materials, colours and designs for the Garden Igloo. Her plan was to create a convertible greenhouse which could be used all year round and which also looked good. The geodesic dome for optimal temperature distribution is one result of this period of experimentation. The other result is the extraordinary resilience of the materials and frame.
In the late summer of 2013, the Garden Igloo was unveiled at the garden trade fair Spoga-Gafa in Cologne in Germany. To the delight of the designer, it was immediately included in the ranges of several major distributors such as Bauhaus and Hornbach. Online shops in many European countries and the US are selling it.
It has also been available since March 2013 via the company's own website http://www.gardenigloo.com and it has its own sales company in Germany.
The initial studio in Istanbul is now too small, but Cagla Alemdar has made a conscious decision not to relocate production to a cheaper country. She has moved into a new building with larger rooms and now employs approximately 50 people in her sewing shop. In her opinion, being involved with production is really important to continue to guarantee good quality.
