Misha Kahn Bellyflop Pool Float

About

Immersed in whimsy, Misha Kahn’s Bellyflop Collection reimagines familiar items as functional objets d’art. Presented in partnership with Prospect NY, the latest Cultured Commission is Kahn’s shimmering pool float that will have you longing for summer. “The pool float design came out of a series of work cast inside of vinyl molds—the holes, in this case, were made to give the concrete or resin inside a sense of levity. When we were discussing a pool float, it made sense to reference this series because they’re both made using the same plastic material. We looked at the textures and patterns of some chairs, and considered what could translate into a float. I’d been thinking a lot about the one-upmanship of the pool float world, how each year something more bonkers comes out: a taco, an everything bagel, a David Shrigley swan. I was tempted to throw my hat in that ring, but when I thought about what I would want in my pool, I was drawn more to camouflage. The results are these beautiful bubble objects that almost blend in to the background. Almost.” —Misha Kahn
