meltdown chair: pVC Hose
This chair is created by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a ball of clear PVC hose. The hose begins to melt as it comes into contact with the heated former and, due to prolonged exposure to the heat it starts to burn. Once cooled the surface of the seat looks charred and brittle but is surprisingly flexible and comfortable to sit on.
This forms part of a series of chairs created using the same technique with different materials.
