'Balloon' bench05. Jun2011

TAGS: bench, float, baloon
Designed by Satoshi Itasaka

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.
