Hot or Not? Madam Rubens Collection by Frank Willems

This furniture from Dutch designer Frank Willems gets its unique shape from recycled mattresses. Willems learned that mattresses are the one of the more difficult things to dispose of and decided to attempt creative re-use of them. More pieces from the collection after the jump...What do you think?

"Willems repurposes old mattresses, bending and folding them like giant pieces of bubblegum, then lashes the volumes to the bases of antique furnishings, creating quirky hybrids. The entire piece is then sprayed with a hygienic, water-resistant foam coating, and finished with a pliable, soft paint."
