Basic House designed by Barcelona based designer Martin Azua. It's basically an lightweight balloon that can be carried in your pocket and used for shelter.
"The Basic House is a temporary housing solution so portable it can be folded up to fit in your pocket. Created from a metalized polyester material, when unfolded it self inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun to provide an instant shelter. Once inside the shelter, the material reflects your body heat to keep the user warm. If reversed the material will reflect the sun to keep a cool interior."
