NYC designers Frederick McSwain and François Chambard (of UM Project) created an outdoors-inspired exhibition at Gallery R’Pure for New York Design Week called Off The Grid.

Inspired by camping, flashlights, lanterns, and easy outdoor furniture solutions like using crates as chairs, the designers created what look to be more luxurious and creative alternatives to the traditional camping gear.

The classic A-frame tent is reminiscent of old-style tents and the ideal of camping. It is outfitted with a concealed LED strip in the top crossbar that makes it work like a giant light fixture, blurring the line between nomadic archetypes and more stationary and decorative products. The tent is made of aluminum (anodized or powder-coated), maple hardwood, parachute fabric and custom-made moving blankets.
