The Bare Hair Project – 2012
Bare Hair is a project that has resulted in two poufs made from recycled PET bottles stuffed with human hair. Bare Hair was developed for Studio Västra Sandgatan, a swedish hair studio in Helsingborg, Sweden. The project was in 2012-2013 exhibited at the Nordiska Museet in Stockholm, Sweden. Collecting hair waste, using it to fill poufs, made the costumers part of the process of making furniture. The project is essentially about finding possibilities and functionality in that which would otherwise be considered ugly. The transparent poufs, highlighting the originality of the stuffing, makes the product dynamic: its colour and shape can be changed depending on the stuffing, lending uniqueness to each pouf.
