PVCConstruct is a cultural project without any commercial interest. It was born to illustrate the many ways in which Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) can enhance our daily lives.
PVC sewage pipe is an interesting material: it is made to be cheap and very durable, and thus to last for decades.
Paris-based designer Christophe Machet has started a project called Pipeline using a huge, custom-built CNC machine to transform PVC pipes into chairs.
Christophe utilised the PVC pipes’ pre-existing curvatures to form the backrests and frames of the chairs which are then painted in white, yellow and red shades.
