VILLA WALALA BY CAMILLE WALALA

Look how amazing is this landmark project for London Design Festival 2017: Villa Walala by Camille Walala is a boisterously colourful and invitingly soft-touch structure made from ‘blocks’ of vinyl, sealed PVC inners and highstrength nylon, adorned with Walala’s characteristic digitally printed patterns. The blocks will be inflated by fans, turning them from flat shapes into three-dimensional forms. They are the component parts of a huge architectural landscape that stops passers-by in their tracks and invites them to step away from the everyday, even if just for a moment. Very cool!
