“Softie Wanted”: the nature of matter

Victoria Ledig and Mandy Roos are two of the creatives in the Form & Seek collective. Both graduates of the Eindhoven Design Academy, the two designers create objects that often play with the concepts of “beautiful, ugly, awkward”.

Convinced that things around us can convey strong messages, they look for the funny side of materials to bring back our most childish soul. Their “Softie Wanted” series, for example, uses industrial foam and climbing ropes to make soft pieces of furniture that invite users to interact and play. Their design focuses on material experimentation and hopes to make us kids again.
