Foam Party by Martijn Rigters – a student at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague in the Netherlands – is a process-driven concept that creates made-to-measure foam chairs in 15 minutes.
The machine uses a flexible moulding technique and the human body as a living mould to create a fully fabricated, customised seat.
The process behind the products took centre stage at Milan Design Week 2012, with a host of designers creating work on-site. Rigters’ mini-manufacturing process caused quite a stir at the event as visitors were invited to become living moulds.
Milan 2012 ran from April 17-22. Look out for full Stylus coverage of the event later this week.
