    …and a hot wire plastic cutter.

    I suspect it was manufactured by injection molding, not extrusion.

    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.

    If I had to guess, I’d go with vaccu-formed.

    I wonder if sitting on them for very long could cause skull-iosis?

    not that it really helps, though.

    Awesome! I’m gonna grab the first one that shows up by the dumpster out back.

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

    You will die, I will die.

    Looks like a Space Alien Head design could also make a similar cool chair.

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

    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.

    That is full of awesome morbid stackable win.

    I just want to know when that’s going to be at a Target near me.

    Bah. Death used to be a certainty. It isn’t any more. Science may save us all.

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

    Remember that thou shalt have a cold back when the winds blow.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    Bah! This is obviously the skull of Chairface Chippendale.

  24. teapot says:

    With a drill, a saw and some sandpaper you could probably mod an existing chair if you can find an appropriate model.

    This one would do OK, I reckon:

    Memento Mori Reprezen’ the plastic poolside chair staxx!

    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…

  27. AFURRYTHING says:

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

    Finally have somewhere for Frank Castle to sit when he comes over for fondue.

    “Remember that thou shalt die”

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