Funky ‘Soft Cabinets’ Made From Rubber Foam | Dewi van de Klomp

‘Soft Cabinets’ Made From Rubber Foam | Dewi van de Klomp

Dutch designer Dewi van de Klomp used the overlooked material- rubber foam to design these funky soft cabinets. The slots are cut in the cabinet that can be used to place the plates, glasses and books inside. The more things you keep in the shelves, the overall shape of the cabinet starts to morph and the items start to droop in response to the weight, but thankfully not fall. Check out more details of this unique furniture at SURFACES REPORTER (SR). Have a look:

The designer looks out for the simple materials that otherwise go unnoticed in the house to create the foam furniture collection. The material is shown in its pure form and the cabinet showcases its bending and twisting possibilities.

She used bright pink and green foam rubber to create the collection. The cabinet changes its shape in various irregular forms based on the objects placed on it.


Though it has long weak legs, it is strong enough to straight up without letting any items placed in it fall. 


The foam furniture designs were first released in 2013 by Van de Klomp, but she lately re-released a resized version of one of the green-coloured foam cabinets. The new version has a wall attachment too.
