Lovely Texture and colour

21st December 2011

Someone (anonymous) very kindly sent me this on Vimeo. It is lovely and I thought I would share it on. Think they were inspired by the colour and materials workshop that I recently ran using a very similar technique.

'I like to think of myself as working in collaboration with materials, processes and phenomena and that the final physical outcome is a product of mutual consent.' -Tom price

Materiality is always something that catches my eye and I am really glad to see that designers are still pushing the boundaries of materials and processes in what maybe considered to be unconventional ways.

Tom Price and Kai Williams and Chen Chen both showed melted down materials in their furniture on show at Design Miami.
Price's chair is typical of his process but has taken it to a new level with the interplay of colour. Using a heated metal chair shaped tool he melted a series of woven rugs into a new plastic textile.

Also using a similar processm Kai Williams and Chen Chen have mixed up rope, resin, fabric and clay on a wooden based stool resulting in a delicately brash but beautiful object titled 'prototype 3 in-house stool'.

Williams and Chen's work was also part of 'inventory 02's soul does matter exhibition'. The show is a collection of works by eleven artists
exploring the interplay between the intangible personality of a design object in connection with the raw material from which the work is constructed.
