Instant dwelling: "

Instant Home, a work by Valeska Peschke, is a 50 sqft house that travels in a box and takes only two minutes to inflate into a pitched-roof house. Complete with furniture: sofa, lamp, coffee table, fireplace, TV, etc. Instant Home set up in locations typically considered uninhabitable- city parking lots to suburbian driveways, to the deserts of the western United States.



Made me think of Lambert Kamps's hilarious Inflatable Furniture. With his system, anyone can live in a very tiny flat. Just inflate the furniture you need: with the press of a button, you can make a living room, a study, a dining or a bedroom.
