Lambert Kamps’ Cozy Shelter

A cosy corner at Super Brands London...

London Design Festival usually means not much sleep and long days on your feet, so something called “Cozy Shelter” was always going to go down well.

The installation was originally designed for the Design Musuem in Helsinki as part of an exhibition called Design World – part of Helsinki’s status as design capital 2012. It’s made from a 200m inflatable tube and connected together by straps, resulting in a different structure every time it’s assembled.

The outside is designed to look like sandbags and “keep the rude world away.”

Once you crawl inside, the interior space is made of familiar-looking woollen blankets that bring back childhood memories of family picnics and late night car journeys. It’s soft and warm and the sound from outside is muffled. Designer Lambert Kamps said “The object should give the visitors a moment away from the world outside full of stress and impressions.” It worked – it was all I could do not to fall asleep in there!

Lambert Kamps is an artist and designer based in the Netherlands, known for his site-specific installations that blur the boundaries between art, architecture and design.
