New ways of thinking on the portable space

Here it is a very interesting proposal for a portable room/office module. This design has been exhibited at the Fuori Salone this year, it is called HOTELLO, and it has been designed by Antonio Scarponi in collaboration with Roberto De Luca. 

HOTELLO is the design for a polyvalent structure that can be kept and transported in a cabinet. I though it was really interesting because this main characteristic as well as because of the drawings which show a lot of though on the construction systems behind all those colors and measurements. 

The 20th Century left vast, abandoned, spaces in our cities. Warehouses, factories, military barracks have been built and abandoned in a relatively short period of time. Now, the contemporary city is elaborating new strategies to re-inhabit these empty shells.  Hotellois a unit of 4 sqm, conceived to extemporarily inhabit the empty lofts of the contemporary city.

 Hotello is a portable space, packed into a trunk. Hotello contains all the necessary elements needed to work and rest. It consists of a metal structure that supports a translucent and sound absorbant curtain. Hotello can be combined and aggregated in different configurations.
