INFLATING METAL SINCE 1995

Our first inflated metal chair appeared in Blueprint Magazine in November 1995 and since then we've been perfecting the process of blowing or inflating metal for a variety of material applications. After patenting Blown Metal™ back in 2001 our team have been involved in some interesting commissions, working internationally to deliver solutions for high concept interiors, large scale installations and architectural design.

Blown Metal™ offers a beautiful, unique and durable solution for any space. As a lightweight and high strength material, it can be produced for the most hard-wearing and robust of material applications. Like blown glass, it has beautiful surface finishes. And, like soft inflatables, it also has limitless shaping and size capabilities. Blown Metal™ combines all of this with the strength, durability and permanence of metal.
