Foam wood chair
& collect
We looked at ways of incorporating waste shavings into design using bio-resin. A curious chemical reaction occurs when it is mixed with the shavings, expanding it
into foam. By adding colour dye and varied-sized shavings from different workshop machines, a colourful, lightweight and mouldable material was created, reinforced
by the fibres in the hardwood shavings. The porridge-like mixture of resin and shavings was slapped on to the underside of the chair shell by hand, building up the material wherever extra strength was required. The mixture then foamed explosively to create its own exuberant form, anchored by the simple turned legs of American ash.

Marjan van Aubel (Netherlands, 1985) is a graduate of the Royal College of Art Design Products (MA) and the Rietveld Academy (BA) DesignLAB. She has collaborated with Solaronix, The American Hardwood Export Council and Joris Laarman, and she he has exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Boijmans van Beuningen Museum and the Design Museum in London.
