Handmade Industrials created the Impose Totem (2018) by using a balloon as a skin in which to mold industrial granules. By imposing physical restrictions on the skin during the production process, the character of the object comes to life .
Made of balloon-molded EPS, PU leather, and mist blue lacquer, this object measures 30 x 30 x 230 cm. This is a one-of-a-kind.

The studio's work is represented by Culture Object in New York.
