remember last summer when your instagram feed was full of giant swan pool floats? well, brace yourself as this year brings a new addition to the pool toy family — a millennial pink coffin float. created by pom pom floats — a collaboration between designers andrew greenbaum and ian felton — the pink coffin has been designed with humor in mind, resulting in a functional art piece for your outdoor pool area.
the pom pom floats project started three years ago when greenbaum and felton defined their work using four words: fun, nonchalant, satirical, and strange. once they found a manufacturer that could bring the pink coffin float to life, they decided to pull the trigger and created a successful expectation campaign on social media with a prototype. now that the whole world is aware of their product and eager to put their hands on one, they have launched today a kickstarter campaign.
hurry up and pledge US$120 to get one full-size inflatable pink coffin. feeling generous? for US$399 you can get the limited edition clear or gold colorway. feeling antisocial? don’t worry, just close the lid and forget about everything else.
