The simple, inflatable gold cube designed by product designer, Martin Azua, is a statement on how we live and how we can simplify to make our lives better. This is his answer to a house that easily fits into one's pocket and can be inflated by body or solar heat, when needed.
I think I'm needing to remind myself that less is more. For whatever reason, lately, I'm drawn to "simplicity and calm. " Although I don't think Azua meant that we should, literally, all live in a gold poly cube. But I believe that thinking outside of the box was the message.
"Our habitat has turned into a space of consumption in which an unlimited number of products satisfy a series of needs created by complex systems and relations that are difficult to control. Cultures that maintain a more direct interaction with their environment show us that the idea of habitat can be understood in more essential and reasonable terms."
