Thread Wrapping Machine created by Anton Alvarez

Anton Alvarez’s recent design for a thread wrapping machine is not only a stroke of engineering genius, but it’s an automated artwork generator, too. Alvarez’s device wraps objects in a tightly bound layer of glue-coated thread, creating architectural objects out of whatever materials you put through it. The various furniture pieces generated are just as durable as they are beautiful. I can only hope Alvarez’s prototype will be reproduced so that such designs will be available to a wider audience.
