Inventing a craft of his own, Swedish-Chilean artist Anton Alvarez joins wood, steel and plastic to create furniture and architectural objects. Utilising the Thread Wrapping Machine, a tool designed and manufactured by himself, the artist connects elements by cocooning them in vividly pigmented threads, coated in glue. A new method of creating, the practice eliminates screws and nails, often used to conjoin components and results in decorative patterns, formed by the colourful threads.
