NSEPS is the vaguely futuristic name used by SILO designers Attua Aparicio and Oscar Wanless to describe the process their treated furniture goes through. Standing for ‘Not So Expanded Polystyrene’, the manufacturing involves steaming polystyrene beads inside fabric moulds.
The melted beads form interesting patterns inside the furnitures’ structures, their stressed casings creating highly original pieces. Each piece is unique as the steaming process results in a different outcome each time.
The tabletop (above) was made by putting together different coloured beads and then cutting through the material revealing its layers. For more on Attua Aparicio and Oscar Wanless please visit SILO.
