In honour of the 50th aniversary of the Technical University of
Eindhoven, Arno Pronk designed an inflatable donut to be placed
around a chimney at the university terrain.
The donut hangs at 30 m height and is made of a polyester fabric
coated with pvc. The shape of the donut is obtained and stabilized
through air pressure delivered by an air compressor. The donut is
attached to the chimney with cables. On the outside, the donut is
provided with a print.
Students of the university involved
The donut is produced completely in our workshop by the
students. Buitink Technology supervised the project and
assisted in the preparation of the work. Finaly Buitink technology
provided the space, the material and the machines necessary for the
production of the donut.
