Master of inflatable design
This spring, the Brussels Design Market will present a special exhibition dedicated to inflabtable furniture created by visionary designer Quasar Khanh.
On this occasion, rare pieces form the original stock will be showcased! The collection "Aerospace", the first line of inflatable funriture ever designed, and the first concept car in history, the "Quasar Unipower", will be presented in collaboration with mid-century art dealer and co-writer of the book "Quasar Khanh, designer visionnaire", Benoit Ramognino. In adition to his contribution to the Brussels Design Market, Benoit Ramognino will be present throughout the fair and host multiple book signings.
Quasar Khanh is part of the very small circle of designers who marked the 20th century. His most emblematic achievement "Aerospace", alone embodies the design renewal spirit of the 1960s to 1970s: a breath of fresh air freeing itself from historical and cultural references to propose an alternative world imbued with utopia. Beyond its innovative design, the collection symbolises the atypical career of the civil engineer. He never stopped making his wildest inventions a reality whether it be in fashion, furniture, cars, cities and even flying saucers.
