Worldwide regrets that we are no longer able to supply this title, as it is currently unavailable through the U.S. trade program. Publisher's description: Swedish-Chilean designer Anton Alvarez has developed a machine that spins thousands of meters of brightly colored thread around pieces of wood and metal to join them, producing solid benches, stools, lamps and monumental sculptures without traditional joints of any kind. A well illustrated publication on the Stockholm-based designer, featuring hundreds of photographs, traces the process and evolution of his thread-wrapping technique. Alvarez's work, a mixture of his native Chilean roots and the minimal lines of European design, focuses on the systems and the creation of tools that enable the construction of these fascinating pieces. Recognized and exhibited internationally, Alvarez has shown at MUDAC, Switzerland, the Design Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Through photos, interviews and essays, this unique construction method unfolds. Essay by UglyCute founder Andreas Nobel and foreword by legendary British artist and curator Richard Wentworth.
