Mandy Roos and Victoria Ledig are the creators behind 'Softie Wanted,' a furniture collection that makes use of exposed industrial foam as a material. The two designers describe themselves as being obsessed with the "beautiful, the ugly and the awkward," an ideology that gives them the ability to break boundaries and create unique and innovative pieces.

The collection was shown at the Ventura Lambrate 2016 and is marketed with a clever product description that reads "Fresh industrial foam seeks young, bold interior application. To fool around, long term commitment possible. Good looks, sense of humour and love for cuddles are a must." Each of the pieces uses the industrial foam's bright colors to its advantage, tying the material together to create different items to complement a modern space.
