'Balloon' bench05. Jun2011
The 'Baloon' bench was visually inspired by the feeling of floating that the main character felt in the French movie, “Le Ballon Rouge”(1953).
What makes it usable as a bench in reality is the fact that it is suspended from the ceiling by 4 anchors concealed among the balloon shapes which creates the illusion of the bench being lifted by balloons.
The 'Baloon' bench is for sale at Somewhere gallery in Tokyo.
