You hardly ever see it. Polyurethane foam is the most hidden padding there is, but Dafi Reis-Doron (born in 1981) has invented a process that makes it decorative and tactile on chairs and stools. All it needs now is a patent.
For her project “75% Control”, the Israeli designer invented an open mold, a sort-of wooden skeleton that allows the polyurethane to chemically react, expand like foam in the furniture’s structure and generate a colorful fabric-like cushion.
