These Sandbags are designed by Antenna Design, a New York-based design company. The code word for this design installation called ‘Spectre’ was flexibility. Placing sandbags in domestic environments challenges the traditional function and way we perceive sandbags.

Often used in disaster zones after floods, earthquakes and hurricanes, the viewers of Spectre were forced to see sandbags in a new improvisational way. The sandbag gets a new existence as a building block instead of a temporary emergency setup.
