Title: Shelter

– A twin bunk with the ability to rise above “all the sludge”

Commissioned by Roskilde festival, 2010

This project derives from the fundamentally disgraceful aftermath of a big festival, with enormous waste left behind when the party is over. Part of the waste left behind is tents and covers. This project tries to limit the waste by using materials already found on the festival site, which therefore also have a place to be returned to during clean up.

Lewis plates have been used for protection against weather and wind. The individual plates are bent so that they fit in size to the three pieces. Euro pallets serves as a base. The small housing is raised above the ground with the help of beer crates, avoiding cold, mud and dust from the ground.

The sun’s rays are reflected by the Lewis plates so that a comfortable temperature is preserved in the “Shelters”. The front/back carpet is made of bicycle tubes.

Location:  Roskilde Festival  campsite, 2010
