T.E.D = Low Cost Housing

T.E.D stands for Transportable Emergency Dwelling. A new way of building houses is now already being practiced in the United States. Homes are built using a shipping container. This unique and low cost housing is perfect for people with limited budget, or even those who have enough, but is wanted to have a unique and elegant housing. Each container has the ability to hold two families, and can easily be extended by pulling its compartments and tents. It was really thinking of building a home out from used shipping containers. I found it a lot cheaper compared to regular homes. One day soon, I can also have a unique home that are now starting to invade the creative world.

Kinderlite Disposable Campfire Frame and Starter Box

The Kinderlite is a disposable campfire created by Philip John Luscombe from the Northumbria University’s School of Design. Created for exhibition at the Museum of Modern Britain’s (MOMB) “2050 retrospective exhibition on the years 2008-2038”, the product is invented for those who know nothing about survival techniques for them to appreciate the qualities of a campfire. I myself did not know the purpose and qualities of having a campfire. This is maybe because I am not into mountain climbing and camping. However seeing this cute and maybe easy to operate campfire, I may now know the essence of having it, and will eventually learn to appreciate it.

The Campfire Frame and Starter Box were part of a product range developed by Kinderlite to satisfy a market desperate to experience the raw thrill of outdoor living. Living lives saturated by technology and longing for something more ‘real’, the young market of 2018 was eager to uptake outdoor pursuits, go on wilderness holidays and reconnect with primordial practices. Kinderlite products have ever since been helping people overcome a lack of confidence and knowledge to answer the ‘call of the wild’.
