jisun kim experiments with net and expanding foam to create unique furniture pieces

exploring ways in which everyone can make furniture and enjoy the process, designer jisun kim has used fabric net and expanding foam to create a collection of unique pieces. the designer’s method involves a fabric mould that determines the initial shape of the object, from chairs to stools or tables, injected then with foam to result in unexpected formations that ensure no two pieces will ever be the same.jisun kim experiments with net and expanding foam to create unique furniture piecesall images courtesy of jisun kim

 

 

‘making furniture is not a professional process limited to just designers,’ explains jisun kim, currently a furniture design master’s student at kingston university, UK. ‘I have been thinking about how everyone can enjoy and make furniture. using this method means that this design is attainable to a much wider audience without requiring technical knowledge or experience.’ the chair and stool, which are part of the foam furniture collection, have been created by filling the fabric mould with expanding foam, a technique anyone can engage with using just their hands. ‘this method presents everyone with the opportunity to create inclusive and sustainable furniture,’ the designer adds.

  • funny game, but is this trash you answer to a quite interesting question at the beginning?
    does anybody need this most unsustainable trash?
    Go ahead studying and find out answers that reflect state of the art problems we have with producing more unrecyclable items!

  • I bet the Roomba would not like this… But, I did order a foam gun, thanks for the demo.

  • It’s a non-starter. A waste of rice, effort and talent.

    Forget it and move on.
