Ezri TaraziExta Chair, 2007Aluminum
The Exta Chair is composed of eight identical aluminum units. Each is produced through extrusion - a process where melted metals or polymers are continuously pushed through a fixed-width cavity (similarly as in a meat grinder), producing elongated strands that can be cut into smaller, identical units. Extursion is typically used in the production of threads, wires, hoses, poles and profiles. Used here, it allows the formation of a transformablelength chair that can stretch up to a long bench. The chair is produced in collaboration Extal, a company specializing in aluminum profiles.
