Foam Chair 1.0

United Kingdom


This chair was an exploration into connections between materials. more specifically the relationship expanding foam has with metal.

Laser-cut 0.8mm aluminum, hand bent with a sheet metal break. Assembled with stainless steel cable ties. Filled with expanding foam. 

The second version of the chair can be seen here.

Initial prototypes of expanding foam and aluminium. Looking at how the foam pushes away the material that is holding it together.
