Stephen’s first inflated metal chair appeared in Blueprint Magazine in November 1995. Since then he has designed, manufactured and inflated metal sculpture for interiors & architectural applications across Europe.
Like glass, blown metal has beautiful transient surface finishes. And, like soft inflatables, it also has limitless shaping and size capabilities. Blown or inflated metal combines all of this with the strength, durability and permanence of metal.
The process of blowing or inflating transforms a hard industrial material into something that seems soft, organic and tactile, creating a new language in the production of three dimensional forms.
