IN SITU MOULDING I HUMAN FORM AS UPHOLSTERED FLEXIBLE FOAM
In the automotive industry, flexible and semi-flexible polyurethane foams are used extensively for the interior components such as car seats. The seat manufacturer has a mold for each seat model that will allow quick casting of the seat cushion -the molded flexible foam- which will then be upholstered after removal from the mold. The combination of these two steps is possible through in-situ foam-in-fabric or direct moulding . LEFT MARTIN MARGIELA, PHOTOGRAPHY MARK BORTHWICK. RIGHT PANAMARENKO, POLISTES, 1975.
