Threading Machine: Anton Alvarez

Swedish-Chilean designer Anton Alvarez has invented an ingenious process to join objects. The thread wrapping machine can join large and small objects in different materials and make them into something new. Craft – design – art.

A recent graduate of the Royal College of Art’s Design Products MA, Alvarez originally studied fine art and cabinetmaking before completing an Interior Architecture and Furniture Design course at Konstfack, the University College of Arts, Craft and Design in Stockholm. Alvarez’s work focuses on the design of systems and the creation of tools and processes for producing products. Alvarez work has been exhibited internationally, including at MUDAC, the Design Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. > MORE
