Inflatable Cactus Stand / shelf

Inflatable Cactus Stand
Inflatable Cactus Stand

When enjoying the sunshine on beach people are always looking for someplace to put aside things. The cactus stand is able to solve this problem due to its features: It is an inflatable stand, it has light weight and small size, and it can be folded easily. Carry-on goods can be hanged on brackets; mobile devices can be charged with standby power; it can be inserted in the sand easily. Our inspiration comes from cactus although it always appear in the desert, it creates an interesting operational environment by combining the similarities of shape between beach and desert. This cartoon-like beach tree creates a joyful ambience on the beach.
