About ArcoNode

We’re a product design company based in Cornwall and also run a small manufacturing business – Big Cushion.

We started the spherical house project in 2009, preparing four scale models, one as proof-of-concept, the others to see how the finished home might look. One of these was an accurately scaled architectural model prepared on Rhino, a 3D modelling software, by a Falmouth company, Meshcanics, and then built in 2015 with nearly 200 pieces using 3D-printing and laser cutting at Falmouth Universities’ Fablab.

Around 25 online companies covered the project at this time, including MSN News, George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, Inhabitat and BoingBoing.

We recently relaunched as The ArcoNode Project (formerly The Ekinoid Project) and are actively pursuing grant funding.
