Dutchman Marijn Oomen (31) came up with this idea in 2010. While the Lamzac® the original is large and comfy when you use it, it is easily deflated and stored in a small package allowing you to take it anywhere you want! As a result the Lamzac® the original is the perfect buddy for all your outdoor activities such as travelling, festivals, beach trips, ski trips, hanging out in the park and much more. Meanwhile the lightweight but strong and durable fabric will ensure that you can use the Lamzac® the original over and over again. Be prepared to get loads of attention when using this product in public!

About IDA

A handful of designers, thinkers and entrepreneurs created the International Design Awards in 2007 as a response to the lack of recognition and celebration for smart and sustainable multidisciplinary design. The International Design Awards (IDA) exists to recognize, celebrate and promote legendary design visionaries and to uncover emerging talent in Architecture, Interior, Product, Graphic, and Fashion Design. IDA aspires to draw attention to the iconoclasm of design world wide, conceptualizing and producing great work.
