    The technology surrounding the use of expanded polyurethane normally generates products that maintain the same form. ‘Shadow’ is free from this restriction; each chair is created without casting, and therefore each chair is a different, unique armchair. ‘Shadow’ is a perfect example of Pesce’s 40-year research into Random Series Production. In this case, the polyurethane expands directly in the textile covering, following a ‘body shape’, and when it solidifies, it creates structure. As a result of this process, the covering is always twisted in an unpredictable way.
