chair treatment  / 2014


50% eames / 50 % you was an university project with the goal to create a new seating shell for the famous eames eiffel chair base.
Instead of creating a completely new seating shell, a treatment with PU skin foam was applied to the original shell, to juxtapose the stringent and well considered design of eames with the chaotic and unretracable expansion of PU foam.

But just like mold can develop a intriguing asthetic when observed right, the chemical process creates a unique look whilst also providing a better seating comfort due to its flexible nature.
