I got jealous of Matt’s recent “SuperFoam” chair post and had to find one of my own. This design is from a Taiwanese student named Yu-Wing Wu. The voids are non-random, being carefully designed to collapse into the shape of an armchair when you sit on the thing, which in its resting state looks more like a giant block of tofu than a chair. No word on how it was manufactured. [via Neatorama]

    It look pretty comfortable to sit in, but the block of foam isn’t the most stylish thing to keep in your living room.
