Living sustainably is important, but it’s especially important when one is living among the very natural splendors he or she is endeavoring to preserve.
Go to any park or camping site and you’ll see signs asking that you leave with everything you brought, but some people ignore them.
The Under Cover Camper (via Inhabitat) could at least partially solve that problem, by being too nice throw away.
This two-person tent was conjured by New Zealand designer Nikolai Sorensen, and features a marine ply frame with canvas fly for waterproofing, plus brass and leather trim to give it some class.
The design recalls canvas shelters used by surveyors and naturalists, so it should tickle the average hipster’s sense of “authenticity,” and be able to survive a weekend in the local mall parking lot waiting for the latest Apple product launch.
In addition to classic style, the Under Cover Camper also features a front wall that can be folded up, converting it into a sun shelter during the hottest hours of the day.
The Under Cover Camper isn’t available for sale just yet, but with its durable design it could last a lot longer than the average plastic Coleman tent, ultimately conserving resources.
