Swell Benches and Stools by Rachel Griffin
by Harry / January 23, 2013
Instead of moulding, cutting and gluing blocks of foam then sewing fabric on top, Rachel Griffin is upholstering in reverse, using a fabric "bowl", filling it with foam and dipping the frame in it.

Swell combines several steps of furniture production into one by using the fabric and frame as the original mould for the foam. "Produced upside-down, the fabric (moulded felt) is used as a bowl into which liquid polyurethane foam is poured, while an elm wood frame is suspended directly above in a jig. The foam slowly expands, rising out of the felt and through the form of the frame, binding the two parts together." Via Architonic.
