Inflation Moulded Water Vessels, 2008

Gregor Timlin enjoys the idea of deliberately setting himself limitations when designing. For this project he has developed a process of inflation moulding which acts as that limitation. PVC bags are inflated and rotation moulded with polyurethane resin to create one-off rigid forms. These forms are then fitted with attachments to suggest function. Inflation Moulding lends itself to variation by virtue of the fact that each mould is both quick to produce and useless once the object has been created. Using this process control over how the object looks and functions is largely dictated by the limitations of the material. The objects thus take on a life that is as unique as the manor in which they are produced.
