Diamond Brand turns heads as it turns to crowdfunding for new design
The modular tent with “air conditioning” and a moon roof is a Kickstarter exclusive
Asheville, North Carolina (July 27, 2021) – Diamond Brand Gear announced its first ever Kickstarter campaign for the LMNL tent system – an innovative glamping tent uniquely positioned to serve a broad array of end users, from those looking to earn income in the booming outdoor lodging market to individuals seeking a backyard getaway.
“As a society, there is a growing need for different types of escapes,” said John Delaloye, CEO of Diamond Brand Gear. “We wanted to make that more accessible for people, but we also wanted to create a beautiful space that feeds the soul, hence the retractable roof with a view of the stars.”
With its portability factor (the entire system can fit into the trunk of a car) and user-friendly assembly, LMNL is poised to make a new type of getaway well within reach of consumers.
Materials Focused on Durability and Sustainability
The lifecycle of the LMNL system is infinitely expanded with easily replaceable components, from the click-together frame (with 3D printed connection points) to interchangeable panels (inner screens and outer fabrics) that can be added or removed to suit environmental and aesthetic needs. The company’s steadfast focus on quality materials, purpose-focused fabrics and replaceable parts creates a tent system that is as durable as it is sustainable.
The Most Ventilated Wall Tent on the Market
With a unique experience top-of-mind, the LMNL tent system is also crafted for comfort. Users can enjoy 360 degrees of breeze and visibility with a full screen system covering roof and walls—allowing those views of the night sky to also be bug-free. The retractable roof also vents, detaching from the walls to allow hot air to escape and cooler air to circulate in, maximizing the time users can enjoy their tent, even during hot days.
Crowdsourcing as a Path to Innovation
Diamond Brand Gear is turning to Kickstarter for this project as a means of unlocking their potential for innovation. Funding the project will allow them to sidestep supply chain challenges, creating a more efficient and sustainable means of production. The company hopes to find support among Kickstarter’s community of big thinkers, seeking investment from enthusiastic end users, as well as feedback. In a spirit of co-development, Diamond Brand Gear will make improvements based on first generation evaluation. Limited early backers will even receive free updates to the tent system, for both frame and fabric components.
The Kickstarter campaign launched includes a limited number of rewards with exclusive benefits for supporters. Reward levels allow supporters to contribute for an amount that will secure a swag bag up to a set of five tents. All project backers will also be invited to the LMNL launch party, scheduled for Fall 2021, in the scenic mountains of Asheville, North Carolina.
