Deployable Emergency Shelter is a tent designed with the ability to be deployed in seconds, covered in snow within minutes for natural insulation, and it provides a lightweight and resilient aerodynamic structure, enabling human survival in extreme weather conditions.
The jury says
This shelter is exceptionally well thought out and designed. Clearly, there is a strong influence from developing products for space, particularly in the way it folds so small. The product is designed for emergency situations, but it’s easy to imagine how it can be applied in various other circumstances, thus expanding into the mainstream market. Furthermore, the product has the potential to have a significant impact in a future where extreme weather conditions will be a reality. At the same time, the quality makes it sustainable and long-lasting.
