For the realization of artworks we are looking for stainless steel ‘balloons’. As it concerns an art object, the production quantities are low. The assembly of the parts and the finishing (high gloss polishing) are done by us.



We examined the manufacturability of the art object critically. Based on this we came up with a number of areas for improvement in the balloon design. Based on our advice, the balloon shape was slightly modified and we chose to work with large radii and foil. This keeps the visible side of the balloon free of damage



The end result may justifiably bear the designation ‘art’. The balloon consists of two identical halves, seamlessly joined together. The balloons are pressed in series of 200 using 1 mould. The advantage: low tooling costs and the desired small series production.
