Tom Dixon‘s Fresh Fat chair is woven from Provista, a type of recyclable plastic. The Fresh Fat chair glistens like glass, but with more fluidity and less breakability. The industrial process is subverted, as the extrusion machine is deconstructed to allow humans to take charge. The hot, fresh, fat polymer pumps out of the machine and is manipulated and woven by hand into primitive shapes. The Provista plastic takes on a glass like clarity as it solidifies into extraordinary constructions. Each object is unique and precious, and challenges the preconception of plastic as a throwaway material.
