InFoam Printing is a technology research project exploring the possibilities of influencing the properties and the behaviour of flexible foam by injecting it with a two-component synthetic resin. The method makes it possible to stiffen the foam partially without cutting, glueing or casting. In this way, free-floating solid bodies are created in the foam. The use of digital tools makes the production process extremely variable and customisable.
