belgium-based designer maarten de ceulaer presents his 'mutation series' at this year's milan design week 2012.
the pieces resemble the organic transformation of cells that have grown out of scale due to a virus or nuclear reaction.
de ceulaer is taking an experimental review of classical furniture upholstery, as each item is created by carefully composing patterns with cut-offs of
foam spheres of various sizes, which are then applied to the structure. the entire object is then coated with durable rubber mirroring a tactile velvet-like finish,
making each design completely different and unique. the prototypes range in size from small ottomans and stools to large sofas and over-sized chairs.
