designer's own words:Cocoon makes use of simple and cheap material such as canvas, to offer an affordable yet comfortable shelter for the homeless. Being easily collapsible, it allows portability. Its expandable compartments easily accommodate the users’ possessions. Cocoon allows easy transformation between a workstation and a private restful space for the homeless. The usage of canvas allows printing to be done on the shelter. Companies may hence be attracted to make a donation in exchange for advertising space on the canvas.
