structurally, ‘bump’ is composed of a steel frame that forms the backrest and seat, with moulded polyurethane foam padding used to give the design its full and sensuous shape; and shaped foam with polyester wadding placed in areas where added comfort is needed. elastic belts are employed to provide springing. all supported by four feet in solid ashwood completed with a matte sating finish, ‘bump’ is upholstered in leather, faux leather or fabric. nigel coates l'abbate designboom
