Meltdown rope chair

Lots of great DIY/artsy chairs today! Here’s Tom Price’s “Meltdown Chair” he writes –

This chair is created by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a ball of polypropylene rope. The rope begins to liquify as it comes into contact with the heated former and, as it cools, it sets in the shape of a seat creating a contrast in form and texture to the remaining rope. No additional material has been added to make the seat – it is all made from melted rope.
