Carl de Smet

Motivational Speaker Carl de Smet
  • Belgian designer famed for his expandable popcorn furniture.
  • Fusing together science with art and design.
  • Could revolutionise the traditional flat pack furniture industry.

Carl de Smet  founded NOUMENON in 2003 bringing together  science, design and architecture.

De Smet’s most exciting current endeavour is researching promising avenues that permit design of shape memory devices at the scale of household objects or larger.  De Smet compares the process like heating up popcorn in a saucepan. The process can also be reversed, squashing the products to only 5% of their original size.  This makes De Smet’s products easily transported and requiring less space in retailers and easily stored in the home when not in use.

In 2012 NOUMENON announced its chair to the world,  formed by heating up a small cube of the memory foam causing it to metamorphose into a seat.
