Keep an eye out for the fun and playful Designs in Air inflatables that will be transforming Bargates!
Designs in Air is a pioneering inflatable design company renowned for bright, bold and colourful sculptures that pop up at major events and exhibitions worldwide. The company, started 25years ago by artists Pedro Estrellas and Filthy Luker, is based in Bristol and now boasts a whole team of talented local creatives, machinists, riggers and technicians. Whether there’s 40ft tentacles bursting from the windows of a historic museum, otherworldly flowers sprouting from skyscrapers or giant eyeballs staring out from city-centre trees, Designs in Air’s signature juxtaposition of sculpture and environment invites people to see the world around them in whole new way.
Over the years we’ve worked on some incredibly diverse projects and produced bespoke installations for clients such as Netflix, ITV, Anya Hindmarch, the London Paralympics, Glastonbury Festival, Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, the GLA, Qatar Kite Festival, Live Nation, the New York Aquarium and Greenpeace - to name a few!
Most recently we’ve become well-known for our Halloween Monster Invasions, starting with the Manchester Monsters in 2018 and now working with councils and BIDS all across the UK to bring spooktacular, family-friendly fun to city centres at Halloween which keeps visitors coming back year after year.
