south korea-based designer sang hoon kim has designed a furniture series like he would model with clay or draw pictures —without any formalities. made of memory foam, the pieces are multicolored and reminiscent of natural structures, as is they were found in an impact crater.

the memory foam is made through a chemical reaction of different solutions including polyol — one of its distinctive aspects is the possibility to modify the mix ratio of chemical solutions to create an object suitable for various purposes. using these characteristics, the frame of sang hoon kim’s furniture was foaming with a high hardness to withstand the load.
