MIKASI is a sunscreen tent and at the same time a poetic hideaway from a hectic day. In this new interpretation of Indian tepees two nomadic design features merge: the conical shape and the folding grille. Whether in the home or in the garden - inside of MIKASI you can let your mind wander. At maximum extension MIKASI offers a 2.5-meter space (at 250 cm height). The 12 sails are made of the extremely durable material „Tyvek“. They can be attached and removed quickly and easily with the use of high quality snaps. By attaching the sails you can decide whether MIKASI is fully closed, partially open, or even completely transparent. By the number of installed sails it is defined how wind and sunshine can go through.
The word „MIKASI“ means in Swahili „scissors“ and in the language of the Indians „white moon“. The design principle is based on the so-called “Nürnberger Schere” - a link chain, which consists of a plurality of cross bars. The “Nürnberger Schere” is one of the first documented translation mechanisms. Because of the flexible wood structure the size of the tent can be changed with only one hand movement.
