SSFSP is a set of furniture made from excess and waste material that reacts to the body when sat upon. The pieces address the concept of disposability as it applies to material and people under our current economic system.

In trying to create spaces of rest from what already exists, while limiting the exploitation of others in the methods of its creation, I have explored ways “work,” “labor,” and “making” have been commodified by capitalism. How can we reclaim labor and making once it has been exploited? What can be made from what is left over, what already exists? What can labor without exploitation become?

Made from Hooters servers’ uniforms, excess fencing, and mattress foam cutoffs. Capstone for Parsons Product Design program.
