Get Your Head In The Clouds.


464 186 262 362

Clouds are natural canvases and in certain conditions, they can look very picturesque. French artist and photographer Charles Pétillion drew inspiration from the visually limitless variations of cloud formations to create a cumulus cloud using over 10,000 illuminated white balloons. The installation, titled, “Heartbeat”, is featured inside London’s Covent Garden and stretches the length of its entire South Hall.

Describing the project, Pétillion says, “With Heartbeat I wanted to represent the Market Building as the beating heart of this area — connecting its past with the present day to allow visitors to re-examine its role at the heart of London’s life.” Check out some more photos below.

Incredible Balloon Sculptures of Animals and Insects by Masayoshi Matsumoto

Don’t show these to your kids unless you want them to be completely underwhelmed by every balloon animal they see for the rest of their lives. Japanese balloon twister Masayoshi Matsumoto makes some of the most intricate balloon sculptures I’ve ever encountered. From prickly iguanas to glowing sea creatures it seems no life form is too difficult for Matsumoto to faithfully interpret using nothing but balloons. You can follow more of his work on Tumblr and on FB. (via Neatorama)

Playful “Memory” Balloon Lights


06 05

Balloons are universally happy, though they don’t last forever. With John Moncrieff’s “Memory” design, these childhood inspired light fixtures are available to attach to your wall as a sconce or to the ceiling as a pendant to cherish daily. A great addition to a kids room, pop art inspired space or your favorite room in the house. “Memory” comes in all kinds of colored glass (opal, turquoise, pink, green and orange are just a few of the hues) and a couple of different sizes for some variance and hierarchy if you choose to group them.04 03 02 01

Meat Balloons


Balloon Factory (a project by Object Design League) was invited by Sight Unseen to design a window installation for Japan Premium Beef as part of the NoHo Design District, a recurring gathering of off-site design events during the annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York each year.

The Balloon Factory project started as a performance, but it has persisted as a factory. They produce balloons for special events and by request. For Japan Premium Beef, they made a set of butcher-themed balloons (in the tradition of Sam Baron’s sausage installation there in 2010). A selection of uninflated steak balloons were displayed on butcher trays, framed by an installation of hanging sausage balloon links. This iteration extends the original Balloon Factory project and carries a strong reference to the intricate fake food prevalent in restaurant windows in Japan.
