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.

Our primary environmental philosophy is that you will never find a Cherner Chair product in a landfill – the perfect dining chair, it is built to be handed down from generation to generation !!!
“Laik actually means to play, Laikingland is built around the notion of encouraging playfulness. Complimentary to this, our work represents our interest in narrative, humour and craftsmanship. Our hope is that creating designs around these themes will encourage everyday playfulness in the lives of our customers.”
