A tent concept for three person which should be installed less than three minutes.

A system that helps cohabitating couples become more synchronized in their sleep routines. It includes a set of holographic candles and an app that connect to the home’s lighting system.

Tork is a camping tent; which aims to provide a comfortable space for 3- campers or trekkers. It features a convertible breathable roof that can be used to overcome the excessive heat if it is too hot. It can be installed by rolling four poles into the slots in its roof.

The components of Corus are the main candle in the bedroom and other “satellite” candles around the home. The app connects to the main candle through the cloud. The satellite candles are connected to the main candle through Bluetooth and can also control the smart lights such as Philips Hue.  Users can control the lights two ways: through the app and by using gestural inputs on the candles themselves.

Tork has a polyurethane (PU) coated polyester body. Its roof(fly) made of PU coated polyster mesh, which makes it breathable. On the other hand, its floor made of PU coated nylon, which provides heat isolation.

Design Process

Starting with some rough structural mock-ups with bamboo sticks, we’ve have warmed up to work with tensile structures. We thought about several ways of pitching a tent by examining several sketch models.

In order to check the current time, the user has to pick the display up since the display is no longer facing towards the user.

We have focused on a dome-like structure, which provides the optimum volume/surface ratio. We have worked with steel wire and polyester mesh mock-ups to test the structural stability.
 

After looking at the time, the user has to put the display back to its base to silence the speaker completely and turn off the light.
 

In order to see it in real-world size, we have built a 1:1 scale model of our idea with nylon canvas and glass fiber poles. We have been able to decide the sizes and places of ventilation parts like doors and windows.
 

In order to check the current time, the user has to pick the display up since the display is no longer facing towards the user.

We have worked with a professional tailor in order to prototype our idea with ripstop fabric and floor fiber. Our prototype was can be easily installed under two minutes with only one person.
