The Chair - <span class="node-unpublished">Anton Alvarez</span> -

Product's informations:

-coated in blue, brown, and white thread


Work & Style:

Alvarez takes pieces of material — wood, steel or plastic — and coats them in glue, then spins them in thousands of meters of thread. He's the inventor of the "thread wrapping machine", which mechanism joins different types of material with glue-coated thread, binding the objects together without any nails or screws. As alvarez controls the mechanism by a foot pedal, the sticky parts are passed through the wrapping machine as it cycles around. While this process is taking place, additional components are added to create the legs of a chair or seat backs.
