Eine Fleischerei, die in Chicago japanisches Premium Rindfleisch verkauft, Designer von ODL, Luftballons, Latex, Farbe, Meat Ballons. Lecker.
Balloon Factory (a project by Object Design League) was invited by Sight Unseen to design a window installation for Japan Premium Beef as part of the NoHo Design District, a recurring gathering of off-site design events during the annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York each year.
The Balloon Factory project started as a performance, but it has persisted as a factory. We produce balloons for special events and by request. For Japan Premium Beef, we made a set of butcher-themed balloons (in the tradition of Sam Baron’s sausage installation there in 2010). A selection of uninflated steak balloons were displayed on butcher trays, framed by an installation of hanging sausage balloon links. This iteration extends the original Balloon Factory project and carries a strong reference to the intricate fake food prevalent in restaurant windows in Japan.
