FIBO – New York 2005-08

Taking bio mimetic approach of the study of shell structures and the process of flower  blooms a self generated deployable prototype was produced. FIBO is a one or two person shelter that can be clustered with others to protect larger clusters of refugees.

This prototype is envisioned to be covered with MLI blankets on a carbon fiber skeleton with a circular base. The unit will be outfitted with common connecting points to engage various conditions such as zippers, laces and buttons.

This prototype is one of several produced as part of +LAB research.
