Japanese designer Satoshi Itasaka is known for his whimsical aesthetic and stuns fans again with his Balloon Chair, a seat inspired by a short film from 1956. 'The Red Balloon' features a closing scene of a chair that is carried away by balloons and serves as the inspiration behind this furniture concept.

Available in a myriad of colors including monochromatic and vibrant tones, Satoshi Itasaka's Balloon Chair resembles something out of a dream or fantastical tale. The cocooned seat is designed for children and features comfortable cushioning accents.

The piece is also adorned with a cluster of balloons that appear to float in mid air. These elements are the seat's most eye catching accent and will appeal to the kid at heart.
