MELTDOWN CHAIR – TOM PRICE

Meltdown Chair: PP Rope Blue is created by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a ball of polypropylene rope. The rope begins to liquefy 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.

This forms part of a series of chairs created using the same technique with different materials. Also available in a multi-seater version.

Much of the work Price produces seeks to explore the untapped potential of familiar materials, looking for unexpected new behaviour. He often developing machinery and tools capable of braking traditional manufacturing techniques. Chance and unrepeatable results are essential element in this creative process.MOS_tom price_meltdown chair_01MOS_tom price_meltdown chair_29MOS_tom price_meltdown chair_30MOS_tom price_meltdown chair_31
