A new bond: Furniture designer sticks to foam

26 : 06 : 2012 Design : 75% Control : Dafi Reis Doron

UK – The future of upholstery is examined in the graduating project of Royal College of Art Design Products student Dafi Reis Doron .

In her 75% Control furniture collection, Doron brings concealed and hidden materials to the fore. To create the pieces, Doron, who previously worked as a development manager in the plastics industry, poured polyurethane foam into wooden structures.

‘I wanted to use my hands and employ a technique that was as far removed from my previous job as possible, while still using the materials I’m most familiar with,’ explains Doron.

Once poured into the wooden structures, the polyurethane foam expands and bonds the wooden elements together. The resulting pieces share a similar hand-made, hacked aesthetic to those featured in LS:N Global’s DIY design direction.

To see more examples of the work on display at this year’s RCA degree show, keep an eye on LS:N Global’s Seed section.
