Tent Made From Inflated Airbags is a Prefab Pneumatic Gallery
Posted By Andrew Michler On November 5, 2010 @ 4:00 pm In Architecture,Art,Design,Prefab Housing | 1 Comment
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.
