Contemporary Slashed Foam Sofa On Powder Coated Steel Frame And Legs



How can the overall form of an object transform once its surface is broken and tension released? Foam is rolled tightly to create a taut cylinder. A bold slash lengthways with a knife creates a sudden burst and changes the form in a permanent way. The once hidden layer inside is exposed and presents a new surface, which functions as a seat. The hand painted digitally printed textile skins the form of the sofa, its two dimensional effect outlines the eruption. Flame-retardant foam over internal steel frame, exposed powder coated frame and legs, digitally printed textile.

About The Maker

Charlotte Kingsnorth

View Profile
Born and raised in London in 1985, Charlotte Kingsnorth is an industrial artist, melding together the practical and the fantastical. She uses her work to narrate the world as she sees it, conjuring up thought provoking ideas which push accepted values and boundaries. The objects she produces demonstrate her preoccupation in materiality and biomorphic forms.  Charlotte studied at Buckinghamshire University in 2006 Contemporary Furniture and Product Design. In 2012 she graduated from the Royal College of Art, where she studied Design Products under Tord Boontje. Charlotte set up Charlotte Kingsnorth Studio in 2013 and has since worked with clients including Bill Gates, Fendi, SHOWstudio, Ampersand, Christies, and continues to develop work which is widely acclaimed, published and exhibited internationally.
