Signal: Better Shelter


Designed by John Karlsson, Dennis Kanter, Christian Gustafsson, John van Leer, Tim de Haas and Nicolo Barlera in cooperation with Ikea and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The shelter is designed for people who are fleeing their homes because of war, danger or natural disasters. The ‘houses’ include ventilation, solar power, LED-lights and mobile chargers. The houses just take a few hours to assemble. The Better Shelter won the award “Design of the Year”. BetterShelter1
