Mandy Roos and Victoria Ledig are examples of two designers that push singular materials beyond their conventional application. ‘Softie Wanted’ is an assortment of products designed for Form and Seek.
In this collaboration they have revamped dull and lifeless industrial foam to create this fresh, fun and bold collection of lounge furniture.
“In search of the humour and inner nature of materials, they combine the industrial, profane and fanciful. Creating tangible imagery through material experimentation that roots in play.”
The materials used include Foam cut-offs from industrial production and reused climbing rope. Their inventive ideas for elementary substrates is genius. It just shows that even the simplest material can be made into something quite spectacular. I love that the importance of sustainability is heavily present in this design.
