These loungers were designed for the 2012 TX Contemporary Art Fair in Houston, TX.  The yoga ball ottomans were conceived as a prod to change Houston’s unflattering image as one of America’s fattest cities.  Five varying sized exercise balls are bound together to form custom lounge seating units.  Attaching various sized balls at different touch points took some creative research so we collaborated with craftsman Brian Dumaine of Impressions to fabricate six loungers for the art fair VIP Lounge.  We found suction cups used for car windshields that MaRS used to attach the ball which was then secured with glue used for large water floats.  Each ball was then attached with an industrial zip tie to create the five ball ottoman seating unit.
