Nominated for unique youngstar 2014: exTENTed by Elisabeth Seyferth and Anja Wippler

16 projects from 15 young design teams are nominated this year for the unique youngstar 2014 design award. The topic of this year’s contest is “outdoor living”.

All nominated design prototypes will be exhibited at the international garden trade fair spoga+gafa 2014 in Cologne, Germany from August 31st to September 2nd.


The exTENTed car tent was designed by Seyferth&Wippler, Elisabeth Seyerth and Anja Wippler.

Pack the exTENTed in and start your road trip! If you are travelling by car and spend every night someplace else you will be glad to have your bed always ready with you, for example when visiting festivals. With the help of this special tent the interior of the car gets extended. A large canopied area unfolds where you can comfortably lie down at night and have breakfast in the morning. The tent can be folded back together in next to no time and the ride can go on.

The car tent exTENTed consists of an extendable surface, a canopy similar to a common tent and specially designed wheel mounts. It is adjustable in size and can be fitted to almost any car.

Materials: Aluminum honeycomb panels and sections, Velcro, tension belt, PU-coated rip-stop nylon, fibre-glass poles, natural rubber mat, steel and plastic elements.
Size for transportation:
120 x 100 x 15 cm

The three jury winners and the winner of the public votes will be announced in the garden unique hall (10.2) on August 31st at 5 p.m. during the unique hour.
