Cutting Edge is an installation to create sofas based on hot-wire cutting. From the idea of seeing movement as liquid form, a large-scale cutting machine was built to capture the movements of the maker and directly translate them into a permanent shape.

Starting out with a solid block of foam, a series of four individual shaped wires are used for carving all sides of the sofa. They can be placed in endless compositions and act as a bespoke blueprint for every new piece.

The sofas are coated with a durable rubber coating, which allows them to be placed permanently outdoors.
