Brooklyn-based Wintercheck Factory focuses on a polyurethane rubber in their latest series of furniture, Collection 400 – Industrial Rubber. The flexible material is mostly used to manufacture gaskets and belts, and due to its amber-like appearance, they selected it as their latest material which they’ve combined with wood. The unusual pairing feels a bit familiar but at the same time foreign, making you look closer to check out the tactile quality of the rubber.
