Design

Go back to the stone age with these rather comfy rock chairs

You know what’s not great to sit on? A rock. But when it’s made by product designer Matthijs Kok, you’re sure to feel comfortable whenever you sit down.

Known as the Stone Foam Stool, this design arose from Kok’s fascination with installation art. And after searching for materials and experimenting, he developed a ‘recipe’ that made foam look just like real rock.

It’s actually made from a mix of polyurethane soft foam and clay grains, which expand into rough (and realistic) silicone moulds before being painted by Kok.

Check out the video below to see how much work went into these stools. It’s much more than just a piece of foam on a couple of legs.
