Cloud Chair Design Process


The idea of the Cloud Chair is to use the natural expansion of a polyurethane foam used in construction for insulation. The concept is to create a cloud or steam like geometry by the foam process directly applied out of the can.

Therefore, the chair has no inner support structure to allow the foam process the maximum freedom of natural arrangement.

To make the chair usable and to provide a carrying construction, Aduatz experimented with different resins and fillers. Finally, adding glass fibres made the hull structure of the chair sustainable for load carrying without giving up the natural shape of the foam.

The chair was finished with lacquer in a gradient brightness.
