Melting Stool

Designer  Merve Bektas
September 2016

In collaboration with Arçelik A.Ş. for Contemporary Istanbul Art Fair 2016

We created unique functional pieces from waste materials that are collected from Arçelik recycling centers in Turkey. We are giving a new life and form to these discarded materials by taking recycled materials and turning them into objects of value.

This stool is made after series of experimental works by using heat gun. When the heat gun is applied to the waste hoses, the hoses stick to each other easily. As a result, the surface became solid and very aesthetic.

Most importantly, you can easily see the process when you are looking at this stool.

Material : Vacuum Cleaner Waste Hoses
Technique: Heating
Measure: Ø 50 cm
