The 'house' that can fit in your pocket
Attention tiny home lovers - a Spanish designer has created a self-inflating home so small it can fold up to fit into your pocket.
Barcelona-based designer Martin Azua created the unique home, known as the Basic House, using a clever, reversible material which traps heat or keeps the interior cool depending on which side is facing the outside elements.
The Basic House's extremely light material also allows the house to self-inflate with body heat or from the heat of the sun and can be easily compressed and folded when no longer required.
With no furniture, kitchen or bathroom the Basic Home takes minimal living to a whole new level.
Azua was influenced by cultures which maintained a direct relationship with the environment and were not driven by material possessions.
"(The Basic House is) ideal for a life on the move without material ties. Having everything without having almost anything," Azua wrote.
Don't get your hopes up minimalists - the Basic House is not available on the market.
Azua said his innovation was intended as a concept around extreme reduction rather than an actual residence. Dang it.
