The thermoplastic, non-woven textile Smash can be blown with air and hot water into three-dimensional forms. It also responds extremely well to printing and dyeing. 'Blown-fabric', an earlier product, worked with its malleable properties. This time, we wanted to take advantage of its responsiveness to dye as well.

'Blown-color' adds dye to the hot water used to create the fixtures' shapes. The process allows us to work with form and color at the same time, creating a watercolor-like light field and making variations easy, while barely changing the production process.
