Frame Light is created using Hot Wire Extensions innovative recycling-conscious manufacturing process. The process starts by creating a shape using nichrome wire, which sits within a container. The container is then filled with Hot Wire Extensions’ unique formula of nylon powder and sand. An electric current is sent through the wire, causing the surrounding nylon to melt and grow around the form, much like how a vine grows around a tree. This unique manufacturing process means objects are extremely robust and lends itself to scalable and bespoke pieces.
