WeCutFoam Fabricating
Exhibits and Décor for
Museum of Ice Cream,
San Francisco & Miami

WeCutFoam Fabricating <br />Exhibits and Décor for <br />Museum of Ice Cream,<br />San Francisco & Miami
WeCutFoam has collaborated with the pop-up Museum of Ice Cream in San Francisco and in Miami to create and fabricate exhibits and décor for their interactive exhibit rooms

The exhibit in San Francisco, created in the spirit of "Candyland'' children game, consisted of foam structures covered with turf and large fiberglass candies. Over a hundred different foam structure sections were created using five different CNC router machines, for a total of about 300 machining hours. The foam sections were hand sanded then sprayed with Polyurea coating. The coating used was hard, yet elastic so that the visitors will be able to step on the structure, thus creating an interactive exhibit room.

WeCutFoam staff delivered the foam sections and assembled them at the museum room itself, so that all pieces will fit to create the final desired shapes. The museum fabricators then placed turf fake pink grass on the structures, and then placed fiberglass figures and toys on the turf. The end result was a Candyland themed room, where visitors can walk on, play and take pictures alongside the props.

The company also fabricated a foam ice cream truck placed inside a sandbox, as well as a foam castle, for the museum location in Miami. Both props were Cnc machined on a router, hard coated with Polyurea, sanded and painted pink to fit the exhibit room atmosphere.

The room decor that WeCutFoam fabricated is one of many interactive rooms at the Museum. Others include ice cream tasting, letters magnet room, unicorn rainbow room, sprinkles "diving" pool and many more. In this place you can see, feel, touch, smell and taste the flavors. The museum designers and establishers meant to create a place where ideas and dreams are transformed into real life experiences to facilitate imagination and bring people together.

WeCutFoam is no stranger to the museum exhibit world. The company has fabricated Whispering Dishes Exhibit on Market street in SF, BAMScape Exhibit for Berkeley Art Museum, created displays for Petersen Automotive Museum and for SFMOMA, exhibits for San Jose Repertory Theater and many more.
