Philipp Aduatz' intention in the design of the Melting Chair is to capture a transient transformation within a functional and 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. Philipp's Ph.D in natural science gives him the capacity to realize designs, that for most other designers, remain limited to the imagination.
The Melting Chair is available in 3 versions. Silver, Black Chrome, and bronze cast nickle plated for outdoors. The scratch protected, reflective quality of the finish, adds to the illusion.
