IKEA's Flat Pack Shelter Gets a Redesign Amid Fire Concerns

Better Shelter, the award-winning refugee shelter design concept created as a partnership between the not-for-profit IKEA Foundation and the United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR), has announced a late 2017 redesign. It will address real-world "beta testing" feedback from displaced persons living in their flat-pack shelters in refugee camps, as well as from humanitarian aid experts and European countries seeking to provide refugees safe haven by building Better Shelters within their borders — along with meeting stricter fire codes.
