composed of three colorful inflatables, ‘CHAT’ by spanish company imaisde, gives people the chance to communicate while basking in the water. influenced by technology’s impact over the last ten years on the way people interact, CHAT hopes to bring people together in a fun and relaxing way. the incredibly stable pieces each have six hooks, and can be combined in 49 different ways, giving many possibilities for people to ‘chat’. the individually designed inflatables, named christina, henry and athina, offer different options for enjoyment.


‘christina, henry and athina are waiting for you. each inflatable is specially designed so that you can chat with your friends in the sea, in the sand or in the swimming pool while doing anything. christina lets you share your inflatable, while you read a book and your partner or friend is sun bathing with his feet in water on the other side. henry is well thought through for sun bathing or sitting. athina is perfect for sun bathing with your feet up.’ says imaisde.
