TUE Donut

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.
