The Monolith tent stands as a revolutionary innovation in the realm of outdoor shelters, offering a unique blend of portability and comfort. Stemming from the French startup EXOD’s initial foray into inflatable eco tents with the ARK in 2020, the Monolith takes the concept a step further. The one-person hanging inflatable tent marries inflation, tension, and compression to create a stable and versatile shelter that caters to glamping enthusiasts. Whether assembled on the ground or suspended above it like a hammock, the Monolith provides a cozy and elevated retreat. Crafted from a breathable waterproof fabric made in Japan and certified by bluesign, this inflatable marvel is a testament to both innovative design and sustainable materials.
The Monolith, weighing in at 6.4 pounds (2.9 kilograms) for the basic ground tent kit, includes essential components like the tent and fly, skates, guy lines, a packsack, and a rear kit. Its portable design collapses to a compact size of 16 x 13 x 9 inches (40 x 32 x 23 cm), making it an ideal companion for adventurers seeking both convenience and functionality. With a price tag of €850 ($960), the Monolith represents a fusion of cutting-edge technology and thoughtful design, offering outdoor enthusiasts a novel and comfortable camping experience that seamlessly balances form and function.
