Round On The Ground: Camping Doughnut Tent System

January 22, 2016


This is the conceptual Camping Doughnut tent system designed by Sungha Lim, Hyunmook Lim, and Han Kim. Instead of traditional tents, it consists of collapsible curved sections that can be attached to one other in different shape arrangements like S and O. There are also straight sections so you can make even more shapes. The possibilities are endless! Unfortunately, the possibilities are also still conceptual, so don't expect to be chasing your lover around a doughnut tent naked pretending you're a hungry bear and their butt is honey anytime soon.

Heep going for a couple more pictures and then wonder if there's anything that holds them down so they don't blow away.




Thanks to Ro, who once tried camping in a sandcastle on the beach but it washed away in the middle of the night plus a crab stole his flip-flops.

    This is the moral equivalent of junk food. I could say I'm "conceptualizing" about a tent that floats 10 feet above the ground. I could draw a nice picture of my concept floating there above the bears. I could omit any speculation, let alone actual discussion, about the materials or systems required for my concept to become reality. Geekologie should be renamed something like geekdreaming.

    I do wonder if they provide a green version of this pipe tent.

    Saw this on a year or more ago. Still want is so badly. But I doubt it is getting made if hasn't by now. Boohoo and shit :(

    The wind makes a save.

  • Toastrider

    I do wonder what it's made of. Most tents incorporate an over-cover to shed rain, as well as stakes to prevent a wind from picking the tent up. It's an interesting concept but I REALLY would want to experiment with it first.

    why do so many people hate camping?
    if you camp in an rv or something like this you may as well save yourself some money and stay home and google some pictures
    could always use less idiots congesting the road

    @dougfunnay:disqus I agree and would even take it a step further and say that American "camping" has becoming what the Brits refer to as "caravaning."

    Take every possible luxury from home and pack it into your suburbanite crossover (the millenial equivalent of an minivan) and go to a crowded campground and drink sh*tty beer while listening to DMB and paying KanJam. You want to go camping? Grab a backpack, fill it with bare (and bear!) necessities and go stay in the back country for a couple of days. Anything less is just going on vacation but being too cheap for a hotel room.
