Up, Up And Awaaaaay!: The Balloon Bench

December 3, 2010


The Balloon Bench from Japanese design firm h220430(?!?!) may look like a bench being floated away by balloons, but it's just an illusion. Also, the tooth fairy isn't so much a fairy as a goblin that tries to impregnate you with demon babies while you sleep. Which is exactly why I chipped all my baby teeth out with my Junior Archeologist's handpick and threw them down a well when I was six. NO FIERY DEMON BABIES IN THIS ASS, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Anyway, the balloons are plastic and have to be bolted to the ceiling. You know what would be cooler? If somebody invented a gas with negative gravity that could actually float the weight of a bench and person if you filled a couple balloons with it. So yeah, somebody get on that. *AHEM* I'm looking at you, God. But not directly, because I ain't going out like those Nazis in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

One more shot of a different model after the jump.
