Seikaly designed these amazing multipurpose tents with refugees in mind, people who have been displaced by global and civil war, climate change and more.

Inspired by elements of nature such as snake skin and traditional cultural aspects such as weaving, nomadic life and tent dwellings, this weather proof, strong but lightweight and mobile fabric tent gives refugees shelter but also a chance to “weave their lives back together”.

The flexible dual layer tent structure has the ability to close out the cold of winter and wet weather. It also opens up to allow cool air in and hot air out in summer. Rainwater is collected in the top of the tent and filters down the sides so the tent does not become flooded. The tent also has the ability to become a showering facility with water being stored in pockets on the side and drawn upwards via a thermosiphoning system providing basic sanitation.

Solar energy hits the tent fabric and is stored in a battery for use at night providing renewable electricity.

For this amazing life changing structure, Seikaly has won the 2013 Lexus Design Award.

These tents also would make excellent shelter for people who have been displaced by natural disasters.

A simple but effective structure which has the potential to change so many lives across the world by providing some of the basic human rights to displaced people: a home, water and energy.
