Alvarez's work focuses on the design of systems and the creation of tools and processes for producing products. The Thread Wrapping Machine creates objects by binding components in thousands of metres of thread while coating them in glue. Pieces of material such as wood, steel or plastic are passed through the machine as it spins round, controlled by a foot pedal. As the object is moved through the machine and wrapped in thread, additional components can be added to create chair legs, seat backs and other elements. Varying the colour and type of thread used creates different patterns around the final objects.
