Blister / Ymer&Malta 2012

The "Blister" bench is a contemporary reinterpretation of classic padded leather. The object is reduced to its functional minimum: a simple folded surface. The leather craftsman's full expertise can be expressed in the complex leatherwork surface. The leather is glued into shape to fit snugly around a framework of diamond volumes, in the image of a vacuum-packed packaging. The frame gradually evolves into an openwork design down to the ground, on which the object seems to be hovering more than standing.
