Foam Bowl by Marcel Wanders for Moooi
Description + Details
The quality of porcelain is best reflected through its fine and delicate properties, a quality that is not celebrated when using a mould. Marcel Wanders had developed a technique to produce porcelain objects without the use of plaster moulds. A synthetic sponge is taken and dipped in a fluid porcelain clay slip. The clay impregnates the foam. Once the foam has dried, the foam is fired within a Kiln. The foam is burnt away and the perfect porcelain replica of the foam remains. An intelligent manufacturing process that has the ability to show the intricate qualities of porcelain clay.
