Description/

As a student Thomas Heatherwick visited an aluminium factory and saw the industrial process of extrusion. What attracted him most were the warped shapes produced when the first section of metal passed through the die, catching unevenly on its surfaces and contorting before becoming perfectly straight.
托马斯·赫斯维克在学生时代参观了一家铝厂,在那里看到了工业挤压过程并深受吸引,金属前端通过模具时产生的形状翘曲,在表面上不均匀地受力并扭曲,之后才变得完全笔直。

This led him to develop a concept for seating that could be manufactured using the extrusion process. However, at that time no machine existed that was capable of producing an extruded cross section on this scale.
这促使他发展出一种概念,利用挤压工艺制造座椅。然而,当时的机器还并不能产生这种规模的挤压横截面。

After 16 years a machine was created in China for manufacturing aerospace components, and the studio had the opportunity to realise its design ideas using the largest extrusion die ever produced.
16 年后,中国发明了用于制造航空航天部件的机器,工作室终于有机会使用有史以来最大的挤压模具来实现其设计理念。

A limited series of Extrusion pieces were created, and due to retention of the variable and random stages of the extrusion process, each Extrusion was completely unique. The forming die has been retained by Heatherwick Studio, never to be used again.
由此打造出来的少量的金属椅,保留了挤压过程的随机性,每个挤压件也因此独一无二。成型模具由赫斯维克工作室保留,不再使用。

Extrusions reside in the collections of the Pompidou Centre in Paris and The Carnegie Museum of Art in Pennsylvania, and have be displayed in several international galleries, such as the V&A Museum in London.
挤压金属椅收藏于巴黎蓬皮杜中心和宾夕法尼亚州卡内基艺术博物馆,并在多个国际艺术廊展出,如伦敦维多利亚和阿尔伯特博物馆。
