Plastic stacking skull-chair: "Remember that thou shalt die"

This uncredited plastic stacking skull-chair was exhibited in the "New Wave, the new French domestic landscape" show in Milan. It's called "Remember that thou shalt die" and makes me wish I had my own extrusion molder.

  1. It looks like you could make your own by simply cutting a few sections out of a normal plastic chair.

  2. It’s confusing, but I think it is credited – to a company called pool. It’s unlikely to be a picture from the photographic “pool” if it’s come from the manufacturer or exhibition organisers, which it seems to have done.

  3. Looks cool, but that thing is a wet ass waiting to happen. Needs some teeth for drainage.

  4. FYI, that’s probably injection molded. In any case, it’s not made on an extrusion molding machine…

  5. Technically speaking, you would need an injection molder rather than an extrusion molder to make that chair. Extruders are good for making long continues things like pipe (think Playdough fun factory). Injection molders are better suited to complex shapes such as this chair. Also, that chair is awesome.

  6. Extrusion molding is for making objects with a consistent cross section like pipes. I would suspect injection molding.

  7. Extrusion / intrusion molder hell. It’s just a cheap-looking plastic stack chair in need of a cut job: use a wood burner pen (for a potentially sloppy melt job) or box cutter (for a potentially bloody one). just take your time and be careful…

  8. “Remember that thou shalt die”

    Sounds cooler as Memento Mori, which is basically what that means.

  9. makes me wish I had my own extrusion molder

    Considering the number of recent BB threads about 3D printing, I think your prayers may be answered sooner than you think.

  10. Why does death always have to framed in words like “thou shalt”?

    You will die, I will die.

  11. you forgot to include the last part of the title…”Remember that thou shalt die…after thou poorly constructed chair breaks.”

  12. So a mundane object rendered significantly less useful than in its normal state merely in order to give it a crude resemblance to an ancient and ambiquitous symbol of a universal concept in a non-thought provoking way?

    Yep, that’s New Wave French art all right.
