Urban Rough Sleepers is the perfect for those who want to hit the road and leave their busy lives behind them. A designer and a journalist, Ragnhild Lübbert Terpling took inspiration from the real world experiences of homeless people he encountered. Durable and versatile, it consists of a retractable single-person tent that can be carried around as a backpack, with extra items tied to its exterior.

But the best part of this new pop-up shelter design is its interesting business model. 10 percent of the profit derived from each item sold will be used towards an Urban Rough Sleeper for a homeless person. This way, affluent young campers can also help people living on the streets meet their storage, mobility and shelter needs.
