La vision « gonflée » d’un designer

Written by Bloon Paris


The "inflated" vision of a designer

An inflatable and designer seat? It’s probably this somewhat “mission impossible” aspect that initially attracted me.

In my job, challenge is a driver of creativity before being a source of constraint and I liked the idea of ​​returning to the fundamentals of design: reinforcing the practicality, the usefulness of an object, while sublimating it and giving it style.

Behind the astonishing simplicity of this balloon seat, it is ultimately all the small details that make the difference, like the belt for example.

The idea came to us while looking for a way to hide the main seam of the cover and ultimately, it also became the Bloon's trademark. Not only did we make transport easier, but we also added a chic saddler aspect and this sums up the essence of the Bloon: ergonomics, practicality and aesthetics.

Currently, we are thinking about developing the range to offer new accessories, always in this spirit of giving elegance to comfort and well-being and I must say that I can't wait to have them. also, at the office because since I worked on a Bloon, my back hurts much less.

And that too, in some ways, is an additional motivation to work on the project because I experience the benefits myself!
