Taku-Tanku Mobile Shelter by Sterotank

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

The New York based team at Sterotank is capitalizing on the tiny house movement as they unveil Taku-Tnaku, a portable tiny house that can be towed by your bicycle.

The lightweight shelter was created as part of of design competition, and is constructed from two 3,000 liter water tanks, which means it could even float. A wooden ring connects the two tanks, and also provides entry to the shelter. The 96-square foot trailer does not have a bathroom or a kitchen, but it does provide enough room for 2-3 people, a bed, and a desk – while still remaining light enough to be towed around by your 2-wheeler. There’s also a secret compartment below, which is great for storing luggage, and a set of solar-powered LED lights to keep you out of the dark. The product is still in the prototype phase, but we expect this thing to sell for about $10,000 if/when it makes its way to the retail space.
