Solar Water Tarp

May 17, 2010

Personal vessel for carrying and disinfecting water

The Solar Water Disinfecting Tarpaulin is fabricated to be flexible and robust. Layers of rubberized nylon and high performance LDPE are radio-frequency welded to produce durable, water-tight cells. The cellular construction of the Tarpaulin, morphologically inspired by the saguaro cactus, is designed to conform to the body and varied volumes of water. Developed by Superficial Studio, the digitally designed pattern for the Solar Water Disinfecting Tarpaulin lends itself to mass variation and is designed to be easily appropriated for a variety of situations: from carrying water to creating a sun shade; from urban rooftops to rural huts.
