'Shrink' by Nicola Zocca

The Royal Collegue of Art graduate Nicola Zocca presented this tricky joinery within her final year project at this year’s degree show. All pieces of her ‘Shrink’ series, a chair, a bookshelf and a side table, are based on the same simple but inventive process: hot heat-shrink plastic ribbons are tightly wrapped around the joints and fixed by cramming them into a groove. After cooling down a perfectly fitting joinery is shaped.
