We are constantly adapting to new situations, meeting new people, discovering new cultures. It’s time to stop relying on mundane things and explore something new. Discovering new spaces for yourself, you will learn not only about something previously unknown and external, but also the whole truth about yourself.
The origin of the Heimplanet brand began in 2003 with the idea of a new tent concept that came up during a trip to Portugal. In 2011, THE CAVE, the first inflatable tent, went on sale. Since then, Heimplanet has introduced a range of innovative tents along with the Monolith line of backpacks, which focuses on a simple formula – a bag should be effective in any environment. This formula is what Heimplanet’s design and functionality focuses on: the brand develops products that work in a wide variety of environments and situations. At Heimplanet, we combine the best technical features with a simple and minimalist design. The result is extremely versatile products that are suitable for any trip and will also prove useful in your daily routine.
The idea for Heimplanet originally came from generating ideas for an innovative tent design. She was born during a surf trip along the Portuguese coast in 2003. «We traveled along the coastline, and so we had to put up a tent several times. One day we arrived quite late at the place where we wanted to stay that night. It was dark and rainy outside when we tried to set up camp. That’s when we started talking about the idea of improving the tent. At that time it was just fun to talk about the tent of the future.«, say the creators of the brand.
“It was 2008 when we took this idea seriously and started working on making it a reality.”
The design of the tent was born from the concept of creating a completely new approach to planning the design of a camping accessory. The main aspect was the inflatable version of the tent, devoid of metal rods and supports. You simply unfold it and inflate it. The installation process takes about 2 minutes and the pumping process takes about 1 minute. After that, you open the valves, blowing off the tent, fold it up and go on an adventure. This makes camping less difficult and time consuming, leaving more time to enjoy the moments of the trip.
“During our development project, we met architect, designer and futurist Buckminster Fuller. Bucky — that’s what we called him inside our circle — had a great influence on the development of the concept of geodesic domes — the principle that we use for the inflatable structures of our tents. This tent design ensures that the center becomes an additional point of supportand the stress exerted on it will be evenly distributed over the entire area of \u200b\u200bthe tent.
Heimplanet combines the geodetic principle with inflatable technology, thus creating the unique IDG («Inflatable Diamond Grating») technology. This combination gives high stability and strength to the structure of the tent.
“During our collaboration, we learned a lot about Buckminster Fuller, his work and his philosophy, which was a great source of inspiration for us. He was an amazing person, and his ideas sometimes just amazed us.”
When the creators of the brand once talked about his worldview, they came up with the idea of how you can feel at home anywhere in the world, away from your native places. It was then that the idea of the brand name — Heimplanet — was born. In German there is a special word — Heimatmeaning a place where you feel great and at home, a place that makes you feel that everything will be fine no matter what.
Having completed the creation and release of the first product — The Cave inflatable tent — the guys asked themselves about the future of the company. What meaning should be invested in the Heimplanet brand? They believed that they would spend the next years searching for the answer to this question, but they immediately realized one main thing: Heimplanet should not specialize exclusively in tents.
HEIMPLANET should be a brand that allows people to travel in the way that the brand’s creators inspire. Traveling makes us all feel alive. We are wary, but with great enthusiasm, waiting for something new to happen. We are constantly adapting to new situations, meeting new people, discovering new cultures. It’s time to stop relying on mundane things and explore something new. Discovering new spaces for yourself, you will learn not only about something previously unknown, but also the whole truth about yourself. And Heimplanet will help you with this.
