Desperados no-mess house party

Desperados created the ultimate house party with no clean-up! Partnering with sustainable design studio, Gomi, the house was covered with material that allowed guests to run free and get creative with DIY paint refill stations, glow in the dark materials and balloons filled with paint, just waiting to be burst. The unique material will be recycled into speakers so that the party doesn’t have to end.
