Transformation into liquid tin

The Thonet chair project is a project where I started to work with the notion of fluidity as a concept to redesign it.
I openned the chair to used it as a physical mould for my redesign. This first transformation allowed me to cast tin inside of the real chair. All along this project, the process it self became more interesting than the final result. The melting technique of turning one object into a liquid material, and solidifying it again into a form made me think of the reason why an object should keep the same shape their whole life.
In this project I transformed jars, plates, vases, etc into mateial (liquid tin) and this material, into a chair and than I’ll bring the chair to the metal junkyard to let the transformation go over the years, being melted and transformed into different objects/shapes.
To freeze in time one of the shapes of this constant process of transformation I took a picture of this material in the solid shape of my redesigned Thonet Chair

Open Table is a project that uses the principles of Open design, the shape of the table grow from an already existing structure which allows a range of options in terms of material and dimensions. It is a table that seeks to be finished by the end customer in order to be closer to the needs of those who purchase.
#Another contemporary chair
#Another contemporary chair exists as a concept which contains in its shape the information of a chair. The idea of this chair is a representation of how designers are most of the time using this object as a canvas to express their point of views, concerns and thoughts.
