Fabric Architecture- Mojo UFO
December 19, 2012Download PDF Version
Sierra Designs answered our question "How ultra can you go?" with its newest two-person ultralight space-age shelter, the Mojo UFO. To Dramatize the otherworldly Mojo UFO's scant 0.76kg (that's in Earth gravity) weight, the prototype display tent hovered midair in Sierra Designs exhibit, gently suspended by a small cluster of helium ballons.
This freestanding, singlewall tent is made from an American-made nonwoven laminated fabric using Dyneema fibers, bonded to Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight-Polyethylene (UHMWPE) film and is structurally tensioned by just three elegantly arced Easton carbon fiber poles.
