After graduating from the UK's Royal College of Art, industrial designer Nick Crosbie formed Inflate, a UK-based company that produced inflatable household objects like fruit bowls, lamps and chairs.
Crosbie subsequently realized inflatable objects had immense potential at trade shows and exhibits--vendors could inflate and deflate large exhibit structures, making them easy to transport, not to mention visually distinct.
Inflate now produces designs ranging from the closet-sized Office in a Bucket to the gi-normous Trident structure (both pictured above). Check out the full line-up at their site.
