Customer Project: Glamping Unit

by Banana Drive L.L.C.

  • The project takes shape as a light, low-rise tent emerging from a box base made with wood and steel frames. the structure adopts an open character, allowing users to form a close bond with nature, while providing necessary camping amenities. With conventional campervans creating a rigid boundary between humans and nature, and their tall height generating an imbalanced accident-prone structure, we wanted to create a safer alternative with an open character. therefore, We designed a low, lightweight installation on top of a 1ton truck — but hopes that in the future it can acquire a Kei-truck, the most popular small truck in Japan. While driving, the system remains closed, appearing as a single wooden box on the truck carrier. users can then open the box seal and spread the tent open when they’re ready to stop and camp.
