2009

We prototype and develop an idea.

“Why do displacement camps look like they did one hundred years ago? Can we design a safer and more dignified refugee shelter, that is affordable for humanitarian organizations?” a newly graduated industrial designer, Johan Karlsson, wonders. The need is identified, and the idea takes shape where he works, at Formens Hus in the small town of Hällefors, Sweden. The project develops and the Swedish Industrial Design Foundation (SVID) takes it under its wings.
