A new prefab pneumatic gallery made entirely from inflatable airbags was unveiled last month by Dutch Artist Lamber Kamps [2] at Istanbul Design Weekend [3]. 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 [5] to pop up pavilions [6], 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 [7]. Kamps’ vision [8] seems to have no bounds, as he looks to inflate furniture, huge buildings, and even heroes.
