The Frumpy Chairs aren’t what you my typically think of as attractive… in fact, they’re pretty weird. But the process by which they’re made IS beautiful! Designer Jamie Wolfond pours plastic regrind (ground up rejects of failed injection-molded parts that would otherwise go to waste) into a fire-proof silicone pattern and heats them in a pizza oven. After heating the plastic to its melting point, he slumps the mold over a crude form—letting the plastic determine the final product.
