“The idea originates from the image of a prominent belly, constrained by a belt, but still comfortable at it fills a round shape around it. This collection is a dialogue between a rigid structure and a flexible skin. The bloated collection is made out of sheets of leather, filled with expanded foam No complicated moulds, and no seams are used in the production, the leather inflate in a natural way, making each piece unique.
The Bloated_collection are on display at MINT gallery in London until 30 September 2013, and feature to London Design Festival 2013, which is open from 14 to 22 September.” Photos: Maxime Champion, Nico Neefs. damiengernay.com
