Designed by David Bellisario, the U-TERUS is a living module for nomads or people who love to travel around. Not at all a conventional camping tent, this module features a lot more than you can imagine for a compact little shelter. Designed like a rigid oval-shaped pod, this easy to carry living comfort makes it a treasure for the modern nomads. The Eco compatibility of the product makes it even more desirable. The energy generator in the module’s interior is hydrogen fed and all materials are recyclable. The plastic model laid on a poliplat base is made of polystyrene for displaying the spherical sections, and of balsa wood for the remaining sections. The entire model has been plastered and painted with spray paint. The scale is 1.10 for the sealed module and 1.20 for the open module.
As the title suggests, the name and design is inspired from a mother’s womb. The Italian industrial designer holds the concept that humans are always in search of a shelter. This behavior of protecting oneself from the open air might be coming from the habit of living in the original home, i.e. a mother’s womb. The module is considered metaphorically like a shell that protects and carries the uterus.
