An innovative solution designed to save lives
Geoffroy de Reynal
Inventor & Designer of the Iglou
Energy Engineering Engineer
I worked abroad on wind turbine construction sites as a quality manager for a couple of years. When I got back, I realized the critical homeless situation in France. This project is a way to use my technical knowledge to meet a social challenge.

A big thank-you !
10 more iglous in Paris ! (Bois de Vincennes and Paris)
Built in Darwin écosystème in Bordeaux, brought to Paris on 20, Tuesday and distributed with the help of a local charity just before the last cold wave of this winter. We were able to protect a dozen of people thanks to you !
End of the crowfunding campain. We raised 18000€ thanks to you !
This money will allow us to make 10 Iglous before the end of winter and also to develop new models even more adapted to needs: modular and transportables !
Crowfunding campain. Goal : 10 more iglous and the developpement of new models !
On Wednesday, the crowfunding campain has been launched on Ulule ! We are raising funds to developp new models: modular to be able to welcome families or groups and transportable by a single person. 10 more prototypes are going to be made and given to homeless helping charities in the colder areas of France.
Test phase with homeless people in a squat
On Friday, the first 9 prototypes of the Iglou have been distributed in Bordeaux. A big thanks to the Squat Mission of Médecins du Monde and the Tripote and Mascagne charities for their logistic help ! The first feedbacks are good, the users have made the iglous theirs and those who were not able to get one are asking for one !
