PAD

3D textile, expanded foam. 

Pad is the result of a series of experiments with foam injected into a flexible envelope, without using any structure.Pad is a stool which takes its inspiration from the triangulated construction of a large number of objects.

Its ribs, at first sight, basic and rigid, contrast with the use of a flexible and random fabric.These ribs are what structure the envelope and form the article's "exoskeleton" while giving it a padded and comfortable appearance.

In an instant, when the foam is expanded, the ribs become taut, the envelopes swells up and Pad takes it final form, every time a different one.
