Respite Shelter

by Ryan Heiser

Respite is a shelter designed for people on the move. Its red nylon shell transforms into a hammock when you need the relaxation, and easily turns back into a shelter when you need the rest. This task is performed by simply closing or opening the zippers securing the nylon shell. The frame is made from strong steel tubing that is collapsable into a backpack for easy transport. Respite is a unique solution for deployment in a diasaster situation as well as for anyone who is in need of a quick and easy shelter that is easily moved from place to place.
