Poor homeless! Who cares a hoot about where they live? Do we even stop a moment and wonder where exactly they spend the dreadful winter nights? However, we are sure use to seeing them bums move around with their carts, which are filled up with crap nobody gives a damn about. Since homeless and their collecting carts are something that go together, almost without an exception so, a designer from China wants to make these items more useful. Hao Jiang has designed something that he likes to call the Tent-Cart. He has taken the usual push-along cart and endowed it with some extra attachments so that it becomes a sort of mobile home.
Tent-Cart has two sides door which can be opened up and stretched out to convert the space into a tent. Tent-Cart is otherwise the usual cart – albeit one with two handles and adaptable wheels – but when opened up it can easily accommodate an average full-grown person inside. This being a concept, some considerations obviously remain to be sorted out as regards its practicability but the idea itself is worthy enough for a ten on ten. Two more images follow after jump.
