Tailored Stool

A technique similar to that used in the clothing industry is applied to furniture. A pattern is generated and when assembled, the resulting void is filled with foam. Just as a suit is altered to fit the client, the furniture is custom made and adapted to fit the user be they tall, short, skinny or fat.
The process is unconventional in terms of industrialized furniture, in that it proposes a construction technique without a mould. The pattern itself becomes both the defining surface and the mold. In a sense it is a reversal of upholstery in which normally a skin is applied over the stuffing.
