Explandable Foam

17th July 2012

I have always had a fascination and mild love for expandable foam so I was delighted to see Makos Ioannides' work at New Designers part 2.

A series of open source furniture, his pieces explore fun and adventure with a sense of curiosity. Requiring board material, packing tape, nails and expandable foam the outcome is completely up to each individual 'designer maker' as he calls them.

In a similar vein the work of Dafi Reis Doron, a recent graduate from the RCA explores polyurethane industrial manufacturing processes. She has developed a process of creating furniture that 'grows' a tactile surface that has a fabric look and feel, whilst also being the mechanics of the piece.

Using the material that is usually hidden, she has poured the foam into the wooden structure and let it expand. The use of an open mould allows the organic shape to be part of the design and the foam the mechanics for the comfort and molding to the user in the chair.
