Danish designer Ragnhild Lübbert Terpling spent weeks in shelters getting to know the people there. Collaborating with homeless individuals, she developed her design for the urban rough sleeper, a tent that folds into a backpack and can be used for storage during the day. She plans to sell the tent to campers and use profits to put them in the hands of those who need them.
