This compact Duffy Shelter can be used for emergency housing, first-aid support or as a cozy trailer for glamping. But what makes it truly exceptional is that it is also incredibly easy to put together. The flat-pack structure can be assembled in less than an hour using only a screwdriver, so it's perfect for emergency situations, or just when you need a weekend away.
The multi-use shelter, conceptualized by design brand Duffy London, combines practicality and accessibility. It is supplied flat-packed for compactness, enabling 35 shelters to fit in a standard transit van, which is small enough to access hard-to-reach areas. This makes it extremely useful during natural disasters and emergency situations. Thanks to its practical design and ease of assembly, medical teams can use it for first-aid support.
The Duffy Shelter is built from sustainably harvested wood with a variety of finishes. Handmade by in-house and local artisans, the structures are supplied in packages with shells that include walls, floor, legs, roof, windows, hatches and hinges. Although the company doesn’t supply the shelter in trailer form, the structure is easily converted into a mobile unit.
