Blow Me Up

Blow Me Up
Theo Möller, Ingo Maurer & Team 2017
The inflatable tube Blow Me Up by Theo Möller, Ingo Maurer & Team was first presented at Euroluce 2017. It is flexible to use: You can lean it against a wall, fasten it to the ceiling or wall with small hooks and nylon cords. It comes wrapped up in a can and is pumped up by the user. The LED-strip illuminates the reflecting side of the tube, thus dispersing indirect light into the room. From early summer 2018 on, Blow Me Up will be available in two sizes, 120 and 180 cm with the option to choose in between four colours. The standard version has LEDs with 3000 K and a CRI above 90 Ra. Materials: plastic, steel.
