FOAM CHINA
Date: 2009

Developed at the European Ceramic Work Centre (EKWC)

Cupboards made out of self-developed foam porcelain, a new material which has the capabilities of producing lightweight objects that can be handled in a similar way as china. Just like bread, the foam literally rises in the kiln, expanding itself about 300% its original volume. Extremely light weight because only a third of the material is needed, its open-structure also makes it incredibly strong. Through the production process there is an experimental boundary between controlling the material while also letting it behave freely.
