Designer Tom Price created the Meltdown Fleece Chair from polyester fleece clothing. What a a unique way to use thrown out polyester! His chairs are part of this years Art Co’s, From Here to Eternity, exhibition.
According to the Tom Price website:
The seat area is created by placing layers of polyester clothing onto a hot steel seat-shaped former. As it heats, the fabric begins to melt, exposing and integrating colours and patterns of the various layers. When cooled the surface is transformed into a rigid, shiny, colourful display of dissolved pattern and colour.
Though I certainly find creative ways to use recyclables admirable, the Meltdown Fleece Chair looks to me like my son’s bedroom floor after a week of not giving me his laundry—which has caused me to have several meltdowns over the years.
