That's a wrap: Machine blends craft and industry

03 : 09 : 2012 London : The Thread Wrapping Machine : Silo Studio

London – Designer Anton Alvarez has created a new technique that binds materials together using a contraption called The Thread Wrapping Machine.

The Thread Wrapping Machine uses a glue-coated thread that is loaded onto a spinning, circular platform. Objects are placed in the centre of the circle and, as the machine spins, the object held in the centre is coated in thread.

This is a great combination of craft and industry techniques to create a new aesthetic. For another project that combines craft and industry techniques, read our Innovate on Silo Studio.
