Fun and quirky, Invertuals 2 by Raw Color, a creative duo based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, is a series of abstract statues revolving around furniture materials; specifically foam. Commissioned by Dutch Invertuals for press-material during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, it playfully demonstrates the malleability of such a material.

Invertuals 2 by Raw Color displays foam's characteristics including its stiffness, volumes and mat structure. The use of bright minty colors add to the lighthearted nature of the sculptures and photoshoot. Placed overtop human subjects, the foam statues are given a sense of life that is at once hilarious and a bit disconcerting.

Wrapped with rope, tape or simply folded unto itself, the foam sculptures in Invertuals 2 by Raw Color are thought-provoking.
