English designer
created "Meltdown,"
a series of chairs in a variety of 
"non-traditional" furniture materials including .....
plumbing tubes, polypropylene rope, nylon cable ties,
crumpled polypropylene sheets, plastic rugs,
& polyethylene sheets.

He presses a heated metal chair-shaped former 
into a stack of any of these materials .....
the materials melt as they come into contact with 
the heated former ......
leaving the irregular seat shapes.

In the case of the bronze chair, 
he uses a "lost-plastic" casting technique ...
a combination of the melting materials & a mold technique.

I adored "meltdown" collection when I saw it at 
exhibited by Industry Gallery ......
& I loved it last week at Design Days Dubai,
where it was exhibited by Brussels Designart Dealer

The chairs are an editions of 8 ...
except my favorite the multi color "rug chair," 
which is unique!!!

is currently presenting, 
at the gallery & at Design Days Dubai,
an exhibition of 15 unique LED light works titled 
"Luciferase" 
by Spanish designer 

These spectacular light works are 
"a set of living organisms capable of surprising us 
by their colours, textures and demeanor."

The "exterior skins" of the lamps are epoxy resin, 
mixed with different colored sands ...
sometimes covered with plaster or metal dust.

The contrasting translucent glowing interiors 
are epoxy,
mixed with colored pigments.
 
The giant standing lamp at the top 
also includes the addition of plastic filaments.

I adore these "light sculptures"!!!
 
And I think Carbonell's description of them as 
"light-producing creatures"
is absolutely accurate!!!
