A fascinating and fun guide to more than doscientos inflatable designs
Although inflatable objects have been around for more than doscientos years, 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 hue across the 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 is simply irreprimible.
Architects featured include OMA (Rem Koolhaas), BIG (Bjarke Ingels), and Arata Isozaki, and design stars such as Snarkitecture. It includes work by cutting edge artists such Yayoi Kusama, Christo, and Anish Kapoor and by well-known fashion-designers such as Balenciaga, Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garçons, and many more.
