The stools are made by gradually adding drops of stainless steel solder from a welding gun, each one on top of the last.
Libertiny explains: "I was exploring further my methodology of layering matter, slowness and growth. In general, a weld is much tougher than the metal parts which it joins. These objects were done by using a welding gun only as a building tool.Bits of welding solder were added on top of each other one by one."
"The unpredictability and imperfection of the human hand forced branch-like forms to appear and are rather coincidental. The small stool, in contrast to its fragile and feeble look, is surprisingly very strong thus functional."
