raw-edges at 'craft punk' design miami/ performance


'pleated pleat' stool by raw- edges

raw- edges, the london- based collective composed of israeli designers yael mer and shay
alkalay will present 'pleated pleat', a series of paper furniture at 'craft punk' design miami/
performance.




borrowing a technique used in fashion production, raw-edges folds and re-folds DuPont™
Tyvek®
to create a 'pleated pleat' collection. the method of pleating allows the flat, non-elastic
material to become a springy, three-dimensional cushion when filled with soft polyurethane foam.
