100 Flexible Silicone Inventions

From Supple Silicone Dishes to Trippy Silicone Armchairs

— March 7, 2013 — Eco
A wondrous material that seems to be able to do it all, flexible silicone can be used for almost anything you can think of.

Because of its resistance to heat, silicone is excellent for using in the kitchen, protecting counter surfaces from hot dishes and even works as baking molds for cookies and cupcakes. The malleable material is easy to form into durable shapes, creating exciting ice cube shapes that can be popped out when ready. It doesn't shatter, crack or splinter, making silicone a very safe material for children to play with and a great for gadget protectors that absorb shock waves.

Flexible silicone comes in bright colors that add fun to any item.
