Tom Price's "PE Stripe Meltdown Chair" is a experiment with unconventional materials, processes and, of course, colour.

Tom Price’s “PE Stripe Meltdown Chair” is a testament to his interest in unconventional materials and production methods.

Presented by Industry Gallery at Design Miami 2011, the “PE Stripe Meltdown Chair” is a prototype that price made with a heated metal chair-shaped tool that he designed. The tool works to press a stack of colourful woven plastic rugs onto a solid stainless steel frame. The rugs are then set in the shape of the mould and turns out as the finished product once it has cooled off.

The “PE Stripe Meltdown Chair” is a part of the Meltdown Chair series.
