Titled ‘Tree House’, this clever little mobile sheltered is named after its constituent material rather than its location – composed of sustainable cork it is a flat-pack portable dwelling made to replace conventional synthetics-based tents.

An award-winning design collaboration between Ana Correia, Vasco Lopes, Vera Gomes for Dideia (via YankoDesign), it is chemical-free and environmentally-safe, lightweight and portable, and utilizes the positive thermal properties of cork to its advantage.

Like an ordinary tent design, it rolls and folds into a compact and simple-to-store form that can be deployed as needed, and unwinds into a cocoon-like cylindrical shape with built-in insulation, breathable flaps, a small porthole for light and views and a custom-fit bedroll and pillow inside.

Malleable and mobile, the concept remains unbuilt, unfortunately, meaning the most difficult test has yet to be passed: will it or won’t it hold up to wind and other harsh outdoor weather during an actual excursion into the wilds?
