SheltAir rethinks shelter design from every angle. Not only is SheltAir modular, lightweight and easy to transport: it is also demountable, reusable and beautifully designed. SheltAir is a robust and elegant gridshell structure (not a tent!) and erected by nothing other than air. Its biomimetic design takes inspiration from shells and its soft and sensual form provides its users with a place ideal for mental and physical healing – something that most other shelters fail to do. The shape of the gridshell, the choice of materials and even the colours have been selected to achieve the highest levels of quality.
The global need for disaster relief shelters is sadly increasing at an alarming rate.
Currently, there are nearly 80m displaced people globally. This is due to an increase in conflicts, the disastrous effects of climate change and now a global pandemic. These crises require a rapid humanitarian response which is often fraught with political and economic problems. Most existing shelter designs are not fit for purpose typically underperforming in structural integrity, waterproofing, size, speed of erection and most of all, liveability. SheltAir delivers a radically new shelter design that breaks new ground offering an innovative, beautiful and humane solution.
