Jun 26 2007Meltdown Chair


Designer Tom Price has created this chair by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a ball of polypropylene rope.

The rope begins to liquify as it comes into contact with the heated former and, as it cools, it sets in the shape of a seat creating a contrast in form and texture to the remaining rope. No additional material has been added to make the seat - it is all made from melted rope.

Why stop at rope? Why not just pile together some garbage and make a seat out of that? Or melt down an existing chair? Or your grandma? The possibilities are endless!

Can I be on the inside of that? 'cause I'm into bondage.


Still not as good as the chair made of stuffed pandas.


Could you hand yourself (or someone else) with the remaining rope?
'Cause anyone who buys this should be hanged.


I melted my toy soldiers with a magnifying glass...does that mean I'm a designer?

Spider-man's been drinking the toilet water again. Freak.

That thing has got to weigh about 500 lbs.

I'm making a chair from ropey-strands.

That's nothing but a spider orgy with front row seats.

That`s one ugly chair but it can match if your bed is made by molten steel wirings.

But wouldn't this chair essentially turn my ass into a scratch toy for my cats?

Bad Tom! Bad correlation.

Oh and the chair is so popular, it overloaded Tom's bandwidth.
