Honeycomb Refuge / Cabin

Honeycomb Refuge
Honeycomb Refuge

"Honeycomb Refuge" is a new protective cabin that adopts the modular separated structure installed on a cruise ship. Cabin itself is not only the comfortable rest room while passengers are on the boat, but also the rescue capsule that could be separated with the hull at any time and have the function of escape. Once the shipwreck occurs and the hull tilts, you can quickly turn on the fixing device of the fixed Honeycomb Refuge. Due to the inclination angle of the hull, "Honeycomb Refuge" can slide out from the track under the influence of gravity and convert into the rescue capsule floating on the sea.
