Balloon Pin House by Clive Roddy

Not even a decade since it was first released the movie Up has firmly cemented itself in our shared cultural lexicon. Like most pop images, the house has both public and private associations. The image of a tiny house floating up into the air via hundreds of balloons is both tied to its original context, and at the same time is imbued with deeply personal hopes and fears when it comes to traveling and growing old. Now, thanks to the artist and designer Clive Roddy, you can keep your own private little balloon pin house on your desk.

Made of birch plywood, cork, and brass, this little home can serve as a pin-cushion for your aspirational travel map. Either set it on your desk or hang it on the wall via a little notch in the back and let it go. Coming in a little cardboard tube, you’ll also be provided with over 300 little push pins for filling the cork ball, and for laying out your plans of traveling the world. Get yours for $30.
