It’s not something we’re proud of, but, come on, admit it, we’ve all left it until the last minute to buy a cheap tent for the upcoming music festival, knowing that we’re probably going to just leave it there once we’re done, haven’t we? Well, if you haven’t then you are the noble exception to the rule, much like New Zealand-based Designer Nikolai Sorensen.
Having professed a strong grievance about the way that the carefree, festival-going hoi polloi continue to abandon their cheap, temporary canvas homes, Sorensen set about putting us all to rights with his very own tent that, we’re sure, nobody will be throwing away any time soon.
With his focus firmly set upon creating a tent with sustainability, style, longevity, and quality at its forefront, the Under Cover Camper was born; a two-person tent perfect for any occasion. Boasting durability in the wettest of fields and on the hottest of holidays, the Under Cover Camper places the value back into owning a luxurious, stylish tent. And you never know, with the knowledge of this stunning tent sitting in your trunk you may even be tempted to escape for a few more countryside getaways this Summer – so long as there’s a Wi-Fi hotspot nearby, huh.
Somewhere on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, nestled at the foot of a desert mountain range, sits a peculiar sight that is almost completely out of place: hundreds of seats for an outdoor movie theater. Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas recently visited the desolate location and brought back these amazing shots of a decaying dream. He shares via his blog that the theater was built not too long ago by a man from France with considerable means. Tons of old seats and a generator were hauled in from Cairo, not to mention a giant screen that looked like the sail of a ship.
Everything was set for opening night, with one small problem. Kikkas says the locals weren’t particularly keen on the whole idea and decided to discreetly sabotage the generator. A single movie was never screened. So now it sits in the middle of a desert, a random movie theater in the middle of nowhere. You can still see it on Google Maps.
