I'm digging the Dual Cut chair/ottoman combo designed by Kitmen Keung. Global citizen Keung, who's lived in Hong Kong, Canada and Italy, designed the piece for Belgian manufacturer Sixinch.
Splitting a raw rectangular foam block with only two L-shaped cut lines, Dual Cut is a transformable furniture piece that employs the simplest production processes true to the materials in use with minimal wastage. It features two ergonomically comfortable seat back angle options of 6° and 23°, and the multi-formation ability to form a one seater with a side table, a chaise lounge or a corner table. It also easily forms a neat, compact parcel for convenient storage and transportation.
What intrigues me is that the piece's title and description imply it was cut from a single block of foam. Given the contour of the cuts and the fact that they don't go all the way through, how the heck do you think they made it? Anyone with foam experience care to sound off?
