Now here's a clever design. Office in a Bucket is a portable, inflatable room which comes in a big wheelie bin. A fan in the bottom of the wheelie bin can inflate or deflate the room in eight minutes when plugged in to a standard electrical power outlet.
Built for indoor usage only at this stage, the Office in a Bucket (OIAB) has many applications ranging from a portable office, exhibition centrepiece, childrens room or cubby house or chill out room at parties.
Indeed, we believe the marketplace for this product is immense, particularly if it can also be adapted for outdoor usage.
Currently constructed of a lightweight PU coated rip stop nylon, an outdoor structure such as this would have even greater application.
The exterior of the OIAB can be branded, and can also be adapted to hold display and presentation materials, making it an ideal and visually distinctive structure for exhibitions or meetings.
