This freestanding whimsical piece of storage furniture was created by Studio Job for Gufram of Italy, who is known for their playful polyurethane foam furnishings. The armoire or wardrobe cabinet is set with a soft polyurethane foam globe in the center which stays in place whether the doors are open or closed.
If you live outside of Belgium, Portugal or Japan, you may not be familiar with sixinch, which would be a shame given their unique approach to furniture design that incorporates a resilient foam coating.
If you're a modern furniture designophile, you might have seen the Voltaire chairs from their Louis Collection sold at various modern furniture stores on on various blogs. And if you haven't seen the Tetris table or the wonderful Hope Table... well, that's what I'm here for :)

Founded in 2003 by Pieter Jamart and Michele Sels is an international furniture and design company with offices in Belgium, Portugal and Japan. Their focus is on the design and manufacturing of coated foam furnishings. They have other items as well in various materials, but they developed a special strong and reliable foamcoating suitable for a large range of uses.

They are presently hoping to extend their network, so I hope to see them in the US soon.
