Land Rover’s Foldable Cabin For Two Withstands Freezing Temperatures
The miniature structure folds up to fit in the back of an SUV and can keep a couple warm in below-freezing temperatures for winter adventures
Jaguar Land Rover teamed up with Danish architects LUMO to create a compact, foldable cabin that can comfortably house two adults with outside temperatures well below freezing. The cabin can fold down to fit inside the trunk of Jaguar’s 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV.
Engineers at Land Rover built a virtual model to make sure they could find a use for every inch of the cabin. They then handed the project over to LUMO who created the lodge using sustainable materials. Aspects of the cabin were inspired by their Discovery Sport model, such as the tailgate seat, wide horizontal door openings at the front and back and solar panels on the roof that plug into the car when it’s dark. The cabin remains insulated against temperatures as low as -20°C.
