GIR presents a new collection of designed figurines, created in cooperation with the illustrator Bratislav Milenković. Inspired by the fascinating world of balloons, the Balloon Parade collection reflects the unpredictability of these inventive flying objects that open us new horizons. The three figures, of different geometric shapes, are made of a mass of ash, while the graphic details are hand-painted. Although each balloon has a unique character, it works best together, because the joyful parade of interesting shapes, proportions, and colors bring authenticity to every area they find in it. The collection is complemented by three graphics, which represent different moments and thus unite the unique design and atmosphere.
