    Decades ago, designers Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret came up with a futuristic mountain shelter called the Refuge Tonneau, good enough to make outer space aliens and sci-fi fans feel at home. Now, more than seven decades later, design firm Cassina has breathed life back into the project to create these mountain shelters made from light aluminum and pine wood. With a sturdy exterior and a cozy interior, the structures have enough space for eight people.

    The compact shelter sports a bottom floor can sleep two with single beds that fold down. The mezzanine level packs two double beds and two single beds. That apart, the shelter also includes a tiny kitchen and lots of storage space. These shelters work fabulously in colder mountainous areas and could prove to be an oasis for trekkers!
