Conventional upholstery is based on a simple principle: foam is encased in fabric to provide comfort. The 25.0 bench eliminates the foam from the equation and compensates by providing a vast excess of fabric, which is allowed to fold and pleat haphazardly to create a comfortable seat and back. The randomly folded pleats are allowed to shift as they conform to the human body to create interesting organic patterns over time.
