Monobloc rocking armchair in white sand and black polyethylene inside. Indoor / outdoor use.
"MT", or the acronym that names these pieces designed by Ron Arad, is pronounced in English "empty" that is to say "empty" and the void is truly the characterizing element of this project. The volume is in fact excavated and provocatively presents its interior, finished in two colors. This is possible thanks to a double step in rotational plastic production. At first the polyethylene of the color of the external body is introduced into the mold. Once this layer has formed, the second color is inserted and adhered to the first without the two polymers melting in the process, which takes place in blast furnaces. Once extracted, a five-axis laser will cut the lateral ends and reveal the two-tone MT. From a typological point of view, the presence of a rocking chair, very rare in the contemporary world, should also be noted.
