Thread Wrapping Machine
- Caroline Kurze
The Thread Wrapping Machine by Swedish-Chilean designer Anton Alvarez is a tool to join different types of material with only a glue-coated thread to bond it. No screws ore nails are used to join the different components of the furnitures. By using this construction method materials such as wood, steel or plastic can be joined to form objects and spaces. Alvarez wanted to create an externalised joint that would enable him to combine a big range of different materials that normally would require very time consuming methods of jointing them together. At the same time a decorative pattern appears with the different colours of the thread.
