Always dreamt of a nomadic lifestyle, but simply cannot compromise on your comfort zone?
Scottish outdoors company Trakke and designer Uula Jero teamed up to create an unique tent called Jero. The design is inspired by a traditional yurt – a portable structure developed by the nomadic people of Central Asia.
The portable structure is made from marine plywood, a lightweight material with inherent strength and ability to withstand harsh environments, and features a waterproof canvas cover. Measuring 4 meters in diameter, it covers a floorspase of 12.57 sq. meters with a height ranging from 1.2 – 2.6 metres. Its compact pack size (1.2 x 0.8 x 0.5m) takes up little storage space, while the lightweight construction allows it to be transported in a car with ease.
The individual wooden pieces are made using digital and analog fabrication techniques and can be installed together without any tools. Tensioning straps run around the perimeter of the cabin to stiffen its structure, while polyester ropes fasten the canvas to the wall panels’ base.
