- Function of building
This inflatable cloud, commissioned from FRANTZEN et al architects, was developed, manufactured and installed by Buitink-technology. CityLed from Venray has illuminated the cloud from inside with LED lighting controlled by computer.
The inflatable cloud is built up from about 140 different cutting patterns, generated by Tentech BV in EASY VOL and Rhino, a translucent fire-resistant fabric. The fabric is provided with transparent, round openings. The cloud hangs in stainless steel cables. The cloud was installed in un-inflated situation which means hung in the cables and than inflated. The cloud is kept under pressure by a small 220V air system that measures the pressure and fills with air when the pressure is below a certain point. The inside pressure varies between 20 and 30mbar.
