About

Philipp Aduatz' intention in the design of the melting chair is to capture a transient transformation within a sculptural object. The melting chair, which is suitable for use, is carefully crafted to appear to the viewer either as a solid chair melting away or as a solidification of a liquid melt. To create a realistic illusion, Aduatz studied the solidification of fluids as well as the melting of solids with modern 3D animation software. This piece is from an edition of 12 with three artist proofs. The main influence of his work are scientific matters, these inputs derive from his PhD studies where he was concerned with, chemistry, physics and material technologies. Another intention of his work is to develop a certain language of form; sculptors like Constantin Brancusi or Tony Cragg were major influences. Aduatz tries to combine in his work traditional craft techniques with innovative implements such as 3D laser scanning, CNC milling or Rapid Prototyping to develop a new discourse.
