Design and Furnishing of
a Glamorous Camping Concept
THE SETTING A luxury tenting company designed with French aerospace technicians an insulated textile tenting system that would have minimal impact on the ground and could therefore be erected in national parks and heritage sites.
THE SCOPE Redesign the textile to give it a glamorous feel rather than a military or tenting texture. Revisit the modular system to provide luxury amenities such as multiple “rooms”, shower and bathroom features as well as a spa, library and other leisure tented volumes.
THE CHALLENGE Create a sense of luxury despite thick insulated fabrics and low heights. Find a modularity that can adapt to the various needs of extended families, groups, and diverse clientele. Design with sensitivity to the regions in which the glamping is intended to be installed.
THE CONCEPT Adding texture to the fabric and inserting a system of retractable LED piping gives a cultural character and glow to the tent envelope. Working with experts from Australia’s off-the-grid mining community, we designed sophisticated low-impact shower and bathroom equipment to luxury standards. A sustainable furniture collection that can be easily transported and installed on platforms off the ground completes the innovative hospitality venue.

Ethnomad is designed to have almost no impact on the environment in which it is installed. With circular systems of water and waste collection, recycled textile skins, recycled aluminium structures and recycled plastic waste platforms, these hospitality units interract minimally with the terrain and leave almost no trace. The furniture is sustainably sourced from wood, bamboo and recylced textiles and metals.
