do these textures make you want to poke them? squish them? run your finger lightly over their glossy bodies and tap on their soft bellies as they ripple and flow like corals and sink like soft mattresses? well, there’s no mention of what these materials exactly are, but still some of us may wish our products were made of them. every render in mollis corpora – future materials is said to investigate the future of forms — trading the rigid for smooth.

this future-catalog of product design is brought to us from studio TA/VO, by designers tavo ponce and fernando tendero. as consumers and designers become more aware of sensations like ASMR, we could see more products in the following years sculpted, like these, with sensory stimulating forms that might appear in undulating glory during the climax of a product designer’s wet dream.
