Satoshi Itasaka takes his inspiration from a 1953 film which tells the story of a boy that befriends a red balloon and runs through the streets of Paris with his new buddy.  The bench looks like it’s suspended in the air In reality the bench is suspended from the ceiling by 4 anchors concealed by the balloon shapes. This creates the illusion of the bench being lifted by balloons.  What a great illusion and what playfulness!
