Blue Rope Meltdown Chair by Tom Price
When I first saw this chair I thought that is a joke, but I’ve found that this is the result of an experimental process developed by Tom Price, which uses a variety of commonplace plastic products to create a strikingly diverse collection of sculptural seating. Drawing on techniques from his background in both fine art and design, Tom Price applies new concepts of craftsmanship in an act of wilful manipulation and material inventiveness. The PP Blue Rope Meltdown Chair is created 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. Finally I’m wondering how many of you would pay 2210€ for this chair ?
