1 · Can you describe yourself in 2 words?

Anti style ,curious…

2 · What’s your favourite step of the design process?

Experimentation, to realize that something different has happened. When all the possibilities are in front of you.

3 · Where do you get your inspiration?

My inspiration is self generated.

4 . Can you describe your style, how has that style developed over the years?

(laughs) I try not to have a Style, in my opinion the best Designer is the one that you can’t associate to his productst they change constantly. This is the reason why I appreciate chance, it removes style out of the equation.

5 · In your opinion, what makes a product unique?

Using Chance as a big part of the Design process, it becomes mores interesting and the result is always unexpected making it UNIQUE.

6 · Regarding the future, what frightens you?

There’s no point in worrying about the future, I have plenty of worries today.

"Tom Price - Interior Designer Interviews - Best Interior Designers" tom price Top Product Designer – Tom Price Meltdown Chair Cable Tie 3

MELTDOWN CHAIR 2008 CABLE TIE

This chair is created by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a woven ball of approximately 10,000 black nylon cable ties. The ties begin to liquify as they come into contact with the heated former, then set in the shape of the seat as it cools, creating a contrast in form and texture to the remaining ties. No additional material has been added to make the seat – it is made entirely from melted cable ties. This forms part of a series of chairs created using the same technique with different materials.

The ends of the tubes melt and fuse together as they come into contact with the heated former leaving a pattern of irregular holes on the surface of the moulded seat. This forms part of a series of chairs created using the same technique with different materials.

THINKER TABLE 2009

The Thinker Tables were commissioned by the Chinese gallery, Chapter 7, and formed part of a large solo exhibition of Tom’s works that were on show in Hangzhou, China from September to December 2009. They are made using black, white and grey polypropylene tubes that have been fused together, and then melted at one end to create a smooth flat tabletop. The tubes are arranged in such a way that, when viewed from a distance, they form three-dimensional pixels of a two-dimensional image. In this case the images are the faces of the Greek philosopher, Socrates, and the Chinese philosopher, Confucius (or Kongzi) and were chosen by Chapter 7 to reflect the cross-cultural philosophy of the gallery.
