UK design students focusing on the use of design that moves beyond exclusivity, wealth, entitlement, and privilege, have created a coat that is also a shelter. The functional pocketed coat that converts into a tent and a sleeping bag, is intended for Syrian refugees. The students under the guidance of Dr. Harriet Harris, Senior Tutor in Interior Design and Architecture at the Royal College of Art, created the piece out of a resilient and affordable fabric called TYVEC, are are now focusing on getting these pieces to Syrian refugees.
