BERGBETT / alpine hideout


OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD students 2009

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD students 2009

Concept of a sleeping option in the mountains.
The "Bergbett" is starting point and destination of mountain hikes and a place of relaxation.
As an alternative to a biwak or a hut,
it fills the gap between "extrem" and "pleasing".
For a few days it offers protection and the necassary comfort for up to two persons.
Its simple appearance akin to a rock fits into the nature of the mountainside.
It can easily be displaceable seasonal and can adjust a gradient untill 30 degrees.
The opened roof and front face allowed a great view,
so it feels like sleeping really outside.
