Jero yurt

Scottish brand Trakke launch the Jero yurt, designed by Uula Jero taking inspiration from the traditional portable dwellings developed by the nomadic people of Central Asia.

While traditional yurts are typically heavy and unwieldy to move, the Jero yurt is designed to be comparatively lightweight and packable, allowing it to be transported in a small car, or even towed on a bicycle trailer.
To develop the design, Trakke worked in collaboration with the eponymous designer Uula Jero as well as rapid prototyping workshop Maklab.

The designer explains: “To minimise the weight while maintaining the structural integrity of the yurt we looked to nature for solutions – the unique telescopic roof struts are held together using a block designed to replicate the strength and durability of a vertebrae. Using CNC fabrication techniques, we have been able to cut far more complex shapes that allow us to strip as much material away as possible without compromising on strength”.
