Gallery: Tent Made From Inflated Airbags is a Prefab Pneumatic Gallery


A new prefab pneumatic gallery made entirely from inflatable airbags was unveiled last month by Dutch Artist Lamber Kamps at Istanbul Design Weekend. Inside the inflatable tent was a collection of Kamp’s puffed-up furniture and lamp designs, while outside the artist cooked up waffles for the visitors. Apparently these quirky but handy little shelters are for sale as well — for a cool 10,000 Euros.

Inflatable buildings are fairly commonly used as temporary shelters — from emergency tents to pop up pavilions, and now for gallery spaces. The funky design is made from ‘pillows’ sewn and inflated to make a double dome. Guests at the event were invited to come in and relax a spell with a Belgium waffle and admire the inflatable furniture and pneumatic tube lamps. Kamps’ vision seems to have no bounds, as he looks to inflate furniture, huge buildings, and even heroes.

    That is a great idea to get some indoor space if you are in a hurry and have no time to wait for a building to become available.
