The contrast cast by combining two or more materials amplify the uniqueness of each part and make their appeal shine through. Designing a product based on such contrast furthers the uniqueness into structures and expressions.
This chair is structured by drilling a hole through wooden poles, and then pouring resin into it to put them together.
The resin is made from epoxy and modified aliphatic polyamine, yielding a highly viscous property. This is ideal for bonding wooden parts because the resin can go into vessels as it solidifies. White ash is used for the poles. White ash has higher than average vessel density and thus is highly workable and compatible with resin-based bond.
Another benefit in using resin is that its fluidity allows any surfaces to be bonded. To showcase that, two variants have been designed for the seat face.
Extra slits have been applied to the chair legs to increase the total surface area for the resin to spread on, reinforcing structural strength. It adds an extra depth to the chair’s look, as the resin is completely transparent.
