Anton Alvarez Furniture

It is a small revolution that caused the invention of Anton Alvarez, former master’s student in the Design Products Royal College of Art in London. It is a “wrapping” the machine that holds together with one single thread different types of material in a single object. They do not need glue and seams with this contemporary weaving tool that ‘sews’ between their components of furniture with hundreds of meters of wire. By varying color and type of wire during machining they create different color effects and thickness.

The Swedish designer of Chilean origins thus explains his intentions: “I wanted to create a joint outsourced to combine a wide range of different materials, materials that normally require complicated methods to be combined. In addition to composing the structure, the wire is to the same time the decorative pattern. Construction products-wood, steel, plastic or brick-can be pushed together to form objects and even spaces.”

The result is the collection “The Craft of Thread Wrapping”: a series of lamps and seats wrapped in a sort of “multicolor cocoon”, structure and decoration at the same time. Until January 13, 2013 Alvarez participated in the collective Digital Crystal Swarovski at the Design Museum. If you are in London, it is worth to see her (and others) digital crystals.
