Hannes Harms is anindustrial design student who has created an awesome piece of furniture called the Scum Chair that requires a little do-it-yourself action. The design is simply beautiful, using cardboard cutouts and expanding foam to create individual oddly-shaped seats.
The Scum Chair contrasts the aesthetics of the rigid and structures cardboard pieces against the wild and free-formed foam support. Since some assembly is required, each Scum Chair will ultimately turn out be a one-of-a-kind piece. The first thing I thought of when I saw this chair was that a giant wad of gum holding it together, it's definitely a conversation starter.
