Thread Wrapping Machine by Anton Alvarez

The Thread Wrapping Machine by Swedish-Chilean designer Anton Alvarez is a tool to join different types of material with only a glue-coated thread to bond it. No screws or nails are used to join the different components of the furniture. By using this construction method, materials such as wood, steel, and plastic can be joined to form objects and spaces. By using an externalized joint, Alvarez can combine a wide range of materials that normally would require time-consuming methods of jointing. A decorative pattern also appears with the different colors of the thread. Check out the video below to witness the machine in action.
