»Softness is a temptation which a human succumb.«

Softness – a phenomenon in our modern life. Its like a constant and omnipresent in things that surround us, in materials and in society – in behaviour of people. Softness-consumption and softness-illusion allow oneself to be tempted. Its the art of seduction which leads us astray and sometimes on the wrong way. This book is a social reflexion and critical analysis which allows philosophical approaches. Here the materialisation of softness is foam. Foam is like an universal genius which combines function and feeling. It shows an art work of foam in the most esthetic form and pureness
