Designer: Ron Arad
MT1 armchair made of polyethylene. Available in black or red, MT1 armchair is suitable for both outdoor and indoor use and could be considered a rare piece of furniture for its contemporary. Resistant and performing, MT1 seems as a real artwork, in which different work techniques play together to create an object of a big value. Designed by Ron Arad for Driade.
“MT” is the acronym defining this collection designed by Ron Arad, in English is pronounced “empty” that means “vacuum” and emptiness is really the key element of this project. The volume is hollowed and presents provocatively its interior, finished in two colours. This is possible thanks to a double step in the rotational moulding. First of all the polyethylene of the outer shell colour is placed in the mould. Once formed this layer, the second colour is inserted and adhere to the first without merging the two polymers, even though this process takes place in blast furnaces. Once extracted from the mould, a five-axis laser will cut off the lateral ends of the product, revealing the two-tone side of the MT. An armchair that includes in itself, both work techniques of modern industry and the taste of contemporary. Discover all the other Driade products here, on Newpop.it!
