Ikea is known for its practical, versatile, compact, and sometimes frustrating to assemble LEGO-like furniture. Though some of us might have some frustration against IKEA for all the assembly headaches this ingenious company is truly generous and innovative.
Ikea Foundation, in partners with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCHR) will roll out this new shelter for refugees. Not only is this shelter extremely compact, it is truly built with efficiency and durability in mind. Unlike UN’s current tent setups in refugee camps, this IKEA structure will allow for 10 times more durable and longer lasting base camps, allowing the UN to focus on what truly is important, helping the people.
