BMW’s Designworks division has partnered with The North Face to imagine the future of campers with a concept model that takes a new approach to protecting people from the elements.
The lightweight camper was designed by Designworks to showcase The North Face’s innovative new FUTURELIGHT fabric, which has been used on the model’s outer shell. The material uses nanospinning technology to create what The North Face calls the world’s most advanced breathable and waterproof material.
“The revolutionary nanospinning process used to create FUTURELIGHT has allowed the The North Face designers to add air permeability into the membrane of a fabric for the first time,” reads the press release for the camper. “The process creates nano-sized holes, allowing for incredible porosity while still maintaining total waterproofness, letting air move through the material and provide more venting than ever before.”
The BMW FUTURELIGHT camper is on display at CES 2019 in Las Vegas until January 11 (invite only). FUTURELIGHT tech will be implemented across The North Face’s pinnacle products, including the Summit Series, Steep Series, and Flight Series collections for Fall 2019.
