designers barry sheehan and gregor timlin have teamed up to create ‘shelter cart’, a mobile living unit for junk collectors. the unit is designed to provide shelter at a night and also serve as a receptacle for collecting. the lightweight unit simply tips over to provide shelter and the user can configure the adjustable roof. although the design does help homeless people earn an income, the designers understand that it is not a permanent solution and more a way to raise awareness. the design was originally conceived of for designboom’s ‘shelter in a cart’ design competition.
