Upscaled
& collect
In the summer of 2010 the city of Eindhoven asked us to make something fun happen in the city centre. We felt like a clown on a kids party, so that’s how we acted. We upscaled balloon animals to monstrous proportions that were hardly manageable. Making it happen turned out to be as much fun as the end result.
La Bolleur, a collective of designers, evolved from organizing parties and dinners during their study at Design Academy Eindhoven.
