At first glance, Geraldo Zamproni's pillows appear to present quite the whimsical illusions. The gigantic red cushions have been wedged under heavy concrete structures and seem to take their weight lightly. While the large-scale inflated bolsters do in fact sit below very stable architectural elements, the sight of them alone is fantastical, amusing and completely captivating.

Throughout various South American cities, you can find the bright red pillows, many of which have been tucked into art galleries and museums. They can be seen stuck under walkways, roofs, ramps and more and they introduce a visual lightness to industrial edifices. One of Geraldo Zamproni's pillows has been spotted in New York City, and there's reason to suspect that there may be more. Stats for Structure-Supporting Cushions Trending: Older & Mild
