lang/baumann inflate the comfort series onto buildings ‘comfort #6 (madrid)’ by lang baumann, 2008

 

 

 

when they are not setting up surreal staircases in and outside buildings, lang/baumann also experiment with inflatable architectural interventions in their series ‘comfort’. this on-going body of work features  large scale inflatable objects that are placed in doorways, windows and other openings. in some pieces the forms connect the inside to the outside, being pinched by the opening, while others feature entire homes filled with long tubes of air that zig zag back and forth from inside to out.
