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!
