About This Project

A balloon sculpted bench and chair made for Culture Object in New York.


Enclosing pellets in a membrane, Rutger and Marilies spontaneously hand-shape the mass like clay, using multiple techniques and restraints to create their organic forms. Once the shape is finalized, it is baked in a massive oven to set it. No two pieces are ever alike, each object is handmade and unique.


The Pictures are taken in front of a mural by RakeStreken.
