Hold Foam is a project which only uses wood and foam to create light but strong furniture.


The uncontrollable characteristic of the foam expends and holds the structure together while creating unique individual shapes for each furniture.


It explores how quick and imperfect actions in creating can also be functional and aesthetic.

To start this project, I first interviewed people living in temporary places as anti-squats.


From the interview, I noticed how they didn’t really care and was able to try different things to the house in rather imperfect and quick ways because they were living in there temporarily.


I looked at the materials they were using to quickly fix and build within the house and found wood and foam as the materials.

In this project, I was experimenting with the two materials, trying to create quick and strong ways to build a furniture.
