The Net Blow-up Yokohama is the next evolutionary step for the classic inflatable castle. It is a blow-up structure with a mess of black nets within that create various levels to bounce and play around. From the outside, it looks like a captured cloud while the inside is the layer of a gigantic spider.

Designed by Numen / For use, a collective made up of Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljković, the Net Blow-up Yokohama is an immersive experience with every detail thought out. As written on its website, "The result is a soft object which deforms and mutates with every movement of its temporary habitants. The outer membrane acts both like a "soft box" diffuser of the outside light, or a projection screen in case of inner illumination of the installation."
