Coco Sweet is a brand-new and original alternative to the classical tents and campers. The concept was developed by the French brand Beneteau together with IRM and O’Hara. This innovative and cosy project combines several concepts: a mobile home, with its rigid frame, flooring and real door structure; a tent, with its flexible PVC covering; and a tunnel-shaped chamber with a wall made with cellular polycarbonate sheets – uncommon in this kind of application. The unique properties of PC sheets – its lightness, high thermal insulation and excellent light transmission – take on a new form with the COCO SWEET concept which offers an intermediary solution to camping as it is less expensive than a mobile home and more comfortable than an equipped tent. Coco Sweet, thanks to the smart mixture of different materials, protects its users from bad weather, rain and wind whilst allowing daylight to penetrate the interior. Polycarbonate parts in this structure allow for direct sunlight as well as rounded shape. Opaque PC panels protect the intimacy of the users and at the same time give a comfortable atmosphere. Coco Sweet is a fantastic alternative for all those who do not fancy tents but enjoy being close to nature.
