Cotton and timber flatpack cabin
The Dazzle Cabin is a riff on the World War I invention of “Dazzle Camouflage” where the British used bold geometric patterns painted on ships, not to hide them but to discuss their, size, shape and trajectory.
The cabin is a simple wooden flatpack cube frame that sits upon a large wooden deck nestled amongst the long grass of the Gotland site. Each side of the cabin is stretched with a patchwork of cotton fabric colored using dye made from the surrounding Juniper bushes and constructed to create a 3-dimensional flowing pattern.
Designed as a suitably grand and spacious accommodation for one of the longest serving and hardest working members of Designers on Holiday, Julia Georgallis.
