Leveraging on encapsulation of air to provide insulation, protection and comfort, this project explores the idea of a pneumatic “clothing” for people, objects and space.
Investigations to visualise the seemingly “intangible air” with a common handheld heat sealer allowed to develop a pleating technique that forms air-pockets when inflated. Textiles are thus reimagined as an interface between the user and its environment. The series comprises thermal wear, laptop bag, wingback chair, space partition and lamp, each with an evolving skin, from a light veil to a reinsuring shell.
