At Salone del Mobile 2017, Studio Dafi Reis Doron participated in White Young Innovation, a special exhibit directed by Giulio Cappellini that takes place in the city center. In the heart of a unique space with a garden and loft, White Young Innovation features work by young, internationally established designers.
Each piece of furniture featured has one requirement—that it has an experimental way of production. Studio Dafi Reis Doron designed Lignes de Capiton to be featured in the exhibit.
The collection takes traditional upholstery techniques and turns it upside down. They used polyurethane foam in an experimental way, by casting the foam in an open mold with a wooden structure in the interior. Thanks to chemistry, the foam expands into the structure, creating an organic, free rising shape with its own personality. Finally, it’s finished off with a nontraditional take on buttoned furniture.
