Type of Project: Competition of ideas
Sahara Eco House is an international competition that consists in the realization of a module housing for the desert. The starting point of our design research were two typical elements of the Tuareg culture: the teapot and the tajine. Inspired by these geometries we have arrived at a solution original. Tent-Pot combines the shapes of these two objects, proposing an innovative tent capable dialogue with the landscape and nature. The interior spaces have been furnished with carpets and leathers, in full respect for traditions, the outer shell made with an innovative material (solar fabric) that follows the chromatic tones of the surrounding area. A right mix of innovation and tradition. The result is a compact and unique tent, easy to assemble and transport.
