Lambert Kamps is a designer and a spatial artist from Groningen. He works on a variety of projects in the Netherlands and abroad with changing teams and individually. Alongside commissioned work, he develops his own projects and products. Located at the boundary of autonomous art, design and architecture, they can be seen at exhibitions, fairs and festivals.
The Cozy Shelter is constructed from approximately 700 metres of inflated tubing. This is stacked in layers to create walls that form a sort of cavelike structure. The exterior is constructed from a gold-/sand-coloured material and resembles a big golden bubble. The interior is made of soft, pastel-coloured woollen blankets. You can walk around inside, relax and enjoy the atmosphere. The Cozy Shelter is an inflatable hiding place. From the outside, it looks like a solid fort made of sandbags, such as you might see in a war zone. The soft interior, by contrast, immediately gives you a safe, cosy feeling. The work reflects the fragile security of our society – a safety we take for granted but shouldn’t.
