Small Igloo makes big impression

Published: October 8, 2014

A model Igloo Satellite Cabin is on its way to a museum in Genoa, Italy. The Museo Nazionale dell'Antartide ordered the model after a representative of the museum saw one used as part of the Tasmanian Polar Network display at international Antarctic meetings in Auckland, NZ, in August this year.

Measuring only 160mm high x 220mm wide, the model is a simplified version without windows or opening door, but it is made of fibreglass, with a red exterior and white interior. The model will be part of a display showing examples of remote accommodation.
