New Release: Anton Alvarez – Thread Wrapping Machine


The book details the artist's development of a machine that spins thousands of metres of brightly coloured thread around pieces of wood and metal to join them, producing solid benches, stools and lamps. Most recently, this process has been expanded to include architectural installations like the kind exhibited at Gustavsbergs Konsthall. Edited by Julie Cirelli and with art direction by Aron Kulander-Östling, this beautiful clothbound limited edition book includes texts by UglyCute founder Andreas Nobel and legendary British artist and curator Richard Wentworth, with photography by Gustav Almestål, James Champion, Katrin Greiling, Paul Plews, Casper Sejersen, Vincent Skoglund and Märta Thisner. Order the book here.
