The Nasoallinsù company works for renowned brands and communications agencies in a range of sectors. From food to luxury goods. The company’s creativity shines through in the design of original inflatable objects which are both visually striking and meet the needs of their international clientele.
Nasoallinsù were previously focused on stitched objects made of material. These were inflated with electric motors supplying a continuous air blast. In recent years, however, the demand for inflatable plastic objects has increased. Inflatables, as they are known in the industry, also stay inflated without a permanent electrical connection. This is an advantage for objects which come into contact with water. Because water is an element that has traditionally never mixed well with electric motors.
Game changer – welding instead of stitching
The production of welded rather than stitched plastic objects does not in itself present any particular challenge: There is a wide range of solutions available on the market for welding thermoplastic materials like PVC quickly and in a straight line with excellent sealing results. The difficulty lies more in welding complex shapes and, therefore, removing any limits to artistic creativity.
