'Sealed Chair' by Francois Dumas

The young French/Dutch designer and Eindhoven graduate Francois Dumas recently presented this smart series of chairs made from sealed plastic rods. After making them flexible by heating them in an oven Dumas clamps the pieces into different wooden templates. A welding technique that emphasises the melting of the plastic, a seal, connects the different components. Therefore the melted parts have to be joined by compressing together the compatible templates.
