How a Hidden Gem called Foamtec in Camden made sure Sir Richard Branson kept coming up with his big ideas.

Sir Richard wanted a pair of brainstorming rooms for virgins Kensington HQ and he needed someone to create a uniquely shaped banquettes where he and his team of ideas people would sit. He found the answer hidden away in the heart of Camden where a brilliant little company called Foamtec knows everything there is to know about mattresses, upholstery and practically anything to do with foam.
First, Foamtec constructed the carcasses for the banquets from timber. Then they precision cut the U-shaped pads (using a computer program for ultra-accuracy). And finally, they covered them in the materials of Sir Richard’s choice (leather and deep purple velour, Moroccan style). The result was a perfect, concept creating an environment where virgins innovative ideas could continue to flow.

Of course Sir Richard isn’t the only big-name to be sitting pretty thanks to Foamtec…

Damien needed a huge, custom-made seating for his number cool houseboat. Needless to say, it had to be stylish and, just as important, weatherproof, since it would be open to all kinds of weather up on deck. Once again, Foamtec came up with the answer. And the result is pretty as a picture  (but nothing quite as expensive as one of Damien’s famous works).
