Blossom – Richard Clarkson

Blossom is described as an inflatable 3D print, the first of its kind.

As it makes use of both rigid and flexible material, air can be pumped into the piece allowing it to inflate, therefore giving the impression the flower is blooming.

The piece has been displayed as a flower box with multiple 3D printed inflatable flowers within. There are air pumps along the front allowing the user to manipulate the blooming of specific flowers thereby making the piece an interactive installation.
