Urban Rough Sleepers Backpack

Dec 4, 2019

Product designer Ragnhil Lubbert Terpling set out with a mission to create sleeping quarters for homeless individuals that met the 3 most important requirements: mobility, storage and of course shelter. The Kolding School of Design graduate came up with the innovative Urban Rough Sleepers Backpack.

The hybrid backpack itself is being marketed as camping gear to the general public, but 10% of the profits generated will be donated directly to those with inadequate housing. When compressed, the backpack stores blankets, shoes and other necessities, and when it’s fully retracted, it provides a tent like structure for protection from the outside elements.
