Disco Ball Cement Mixer!!!

What do you get when you put 3,500 mirrored tiles on a truck that spins? A DISCO BALL CEMENT MIXER, of course!!

This mobile disco is an art installation by French artist Benedetto Bufalino titled LA BÉTONNIÈRE BOULE À FACETTES. Bufalino created it for the city of Lyon’s recent Fetes des Lumieres, their “Festival of Lights.” With disco music blasting and a spotlight shining on the truck’s mirrored, spinning body, he invited people to participate in a dance party on the street! 

All construction sites should be this cool!


A cement mixing truck isn’t the only ordinary object that Bufalino has transformed into something extraordinary, he’s also made an aquarium out of a phone booth (and lots more!)!

Check out his portfolio of playful installations on his website

    Ah, Pee-wee, I’m sob. Eyes hurt to look at it! The construction process got rhythm of the disco … and it probably will improve the quality of the concrete! Absolutely brilliant, thank you, thank you … and for links again, thank you! That’s things!

    That cement mixer looks groovy!
    Bufalino has a lot of extraordinary stuff on his site.

    I always wondered what The Construction Worker from The Village People drove. Huh.
