The Balloon Bench by Satoshi Itasaka

July 15, 2014

The bench was visually inspired by the feeling of floating that the main character felt in the French movie, Le Ballon Rouge.

The Hobo Society presents the Balloon Bench designed by Japanese designer Satoshi Itasaka. The bench was visually inspired by the feeling of floating that the main character felt in the French movie, Le Ballon Rouge (1953).

The bench is suspended from the ceiling by four anchors concealed by the balloon shapes. This creates the illusion of the bench being lifted by balloons. Although it can hold a weight of 120 kilograms, it is more of an art piece than furniture.

It is available in three different colour combinations – all red, all white, or red and white. It is suitable for any indoor space with a minimum ceiling height of 27 metres.
