The M-velope is a small functional art structure designed to be an escapist place for those looking for something that challenges the conventional norms of reality. It was created by artist Michael Jantzen, who hopes that those who encounter the M-velope will be inspired to think more creatively about their own passions in life. The entire structure is made of sustainably grown western red cedar wood. It can be shipped to nearly any site as an eight-foot cube, or in multiple pre-fabricated pieces.
All of the slotted panels are hinged to the main frame and can be moved into many different positions, which in turn changes the shape of the M-velope. Some of these panels support benches that can accommodate at least 14 people. A small solar panel can be added to the structure in order to power lights, and small appliances.
