Tom Price Meltdown Chair ‘is created by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a woven ball of approximately 10,000 black nylon cable ties. The ties begin to liquify as they come into contact with the heated former, then set in the shape of the seat as it cools, creating a contrast in form and texture to the remaining ties. No additional material has been added to make the seat – it is made entirely from melted cable ties.’
