Bubbletecture: Inflatable Architecture and Design


Add your own review!

Overview

Although inflatable objects have been around for centuries, architects, artists and designers keep rediscovering this deceptively simple - often playful, and occasionally bizarre - technology. Bubbletecture brings together inflatables in every conceivable size, shape and colour across the creative realms of architecture, design, art and fashion. From inflatable dresses and hats, to buildings employing cutting-edge technologies, from ingenious chairs, lights, bowls and even egg cups to children's toys and provocative art installations, Bubbletecture demonstrates that inflatable design, in all its myriad manifestations, is simply irresistible.
