FOOLSTONE: A Mandadian material made from polyurethane, silicone, sand and more.
Sitting Stones Interior Design Magazine, Oct. 2004: “… an unusual built-in sofa that blurs the line between artisanship and sculpture. New York artist Mandad began by carving out blocks of foam rubber, which he upholstered in a slate-colored cotton blend, then covered with a mixture of slate-colored silicone and sand excavated from the site. Along the sofa’s meandering 65-foot length, seat heights vary from 1 to 2 feet, depths from 15 to 28 inches. Pragmatically, the irregular form provides comfort for both adults and children; poetically, mere furniture is transformed into an outcropping of rock. …” Edie Cohen
