The shelter is constructed of a 220 meter inflatable tube, which looks like a sandbag fortress. Unlike the real thing, this “soft version” was made for snuggling and being comfortable, evoking childhood memories of building in-house tents, camping journeys and picnics.

The outer layer is made from nautical fabric, while the interior is lined with woolen blankets that provide warmth and muffle sounds from outside. Thanks to its efficient use of modular elements, it can be built in various shapes and sizes. This inventive site specific installation is in line with the artist’s previous work such as the Fat Furniture and the Bazar Tent, which blur the line between art, architecture and design.
