Ready-made and bursting with color, inflatable objects create a luminous, playful and affordable aesthetic with an ethereal feeling.
Pons built the movable containers by combining everyday wood panels and inflatable rafts with ordinary bakery carts. They function as room dividers and storage spaces, allowing the work area and living quarters to be interchangeable spaces. Giant silver rafts suspended with a system of wires form an alternative type of drop ceiling. Stools provided parts to construct the lighting system. Doubled up pool mattresses became room dividers, and the lamp installation is comprised of air stools. The architect painted the walls blue, purple, and green, while he left the floor cement-gray.
Featured in SPA-DE Magazine, this office project was completed for $999 and overcame shipping and moving problems as well. The conceptual approach reflects Pons’ philosophy that great design is driven by imagination, not money.
