Designed by David Shatz under the guidance of Tal Gor, the 'Melina' backpack tent is a single-person tent intended to provide a place to sleep at a moment's notice.
Featuring an accordion style, the 'Melina' tent can go from a tent that's suitable for a person and their belongings to a backpack in a flash. Although merely conceptual at present, the design of the 'Melina' tent is rather large when folded yet provides a functional way to carry a tent anywhere.
The 'Melina' backpack tent was designed with the nomadic lifestyle in mind; whether exploring nature or urban locations, the unit can become a dwelling anywhere that's needed. This could allow travelers to travel more freely or perhaps even act as a solution for homeless individuals to create a safe space to rest.
