Zieharsofika should show new methods of upholstery construction, aiming to create a stiff cushion from a flat foam mat.

By re-thinking cushioning techniques, the project uses conventional rubber foam mats which, with the help of elastic bands, come out as an ornamental form. Compared to common upholstery technics Zieharsofika achives the same result by compressing the foam. The gathering causes a strong and stiff core while the surface is still flexible and soft.

Zieharsofika was selected various times for Lidewij-Edelkoort-exhibitions such as “Gathering” in Designmuseum Holon, Tel Aviv or “Fetishism” in Trapholt Museum in Denmark.
