New Materials used in Furniture by James Shaw

I love James Shaw and his amazing creativity applying new materials into new furniture designs, and this time he created furniture by spray-painting it.

Expanding further on his material explorations and production processes, shaw has now developed a collection of three ‘making guns’; each an innovative tool for the execution of radical production methods. The first of these weapons, known as the ‘papier-mâché gun’, uniquely co-sprays a mixture of recycled paper fiber with a binder-water mixture such that they condense in the air hitting a substrate.

Being presented at the 2013 royal college of art graduate exhibition, the process creates rough geological seeming forms. Colors can be easily added to the mixtureso you can choose your own.

The “pewter squirt gun” is a deceptively small tool which can melt and squirt out pewter like a water pistol, the material then cools and solidifies where it lands. This results in the creation of organic forms that embrace the natural characteristics of the medium.

The “plastic extruding gun”, the most vicious looking of the three, turns the extrusion of polymers–usually a huge and cumbersome task carried out in distant factories–into a handheld process. Shaw uses this device to form recycled HDPE into exciting and extravagant shapes that again celebrate the qualities of a very under-recognized material.
