Raw Color's massive foam sculptures look like a lot of fun

Posted by Anna Trench,

These oversized, misshapen, foamy straightjacket bundles were made by Eindhoven-based duo Raw Color for design collective Dutch Invertuals. In a sweet range of minty pastels they look like they should provide a comfy bed, but wrapped around a head they’re more likely to suffocate.

Created a couple of years ago as press material for Dutch Invertual’s participation in home furnishings exhibition Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the series creatively illustrates the malleability of material by taking flat foam and creating strange, abstract human sculptures. Unusual, striking and a little bit scary, you also know that if a bunch of you dressed up like this and had a play fight, it would be the most fun ever.
