A Better Shelter
Ikea’s solar-powered Better Shelter lasts six times longer than a typical emergency tent and has already changed the lives of thousands of refugees around the world.
Consisting of three main parts — a frame, panels, and a solar power system — the weatherproof structure can go up in under four hours. It's designed to house up to five people.
