Water Balloon Room

Torafu Architects designed the Water Balloon site installation for the “Eco & Art Award 2014” exhibition held at the Konica Minolta Plaza Gallery in Tokyo.

Water Balloon is the product of a collaboration of Torafu Architects with a glass artist and each light bulb is made by hand using glass recycled from fluorescent lamps.
As a result, no two Water Balloons have the same shape. Moreover, the bubbles inside each unique shape help produce a distinctive ethereal light.

By bringing visitors to bathe in light emanating from the 36 Water Balloons suspended throughout the entire space, which appear to breathe in and out with each pulsation, the architects strived to create a space where they can catch a glimmer of a new natural environment.
