During the Milan Design Week the Italian group of architects Zo_loft presented a mobile shelter for homeless or urban nomads. ‘WheelLY’ consistes of a rolling aluminium frame, round tent poles – these are the stable and supporting elements – and two expandable polyester tents. The bottom of the tent is made of insulating neoprene.
Packed together ‘WheelLY’ can easily rolled and pushed around. Reflecting flanges make it even safe for the city traffic. The inside of the frame provides storage for up to 250 pounds of personal items.
With ‘WheelLY’ Zo_loft presents another example of their research on alternative architecture and design.
