Melting Chair

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.
