Introduction: Plastic Bottle Armor Chair
This is chair treatment inspired by layered metal armor only using plastic bottles!
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Introduction
In my design leadership prototyping class we explored different types of typical materials with the goal of creating a final life sized prototype. My exploration is plastic bottles.
Step 2: Prep Your Bottles
Purchase a case of approximately 24 water bottles, remove the paper label, drain, and cut into pieces as shown.
Step 3: Spray Paint
Coat your bottles in a thick layer of silver spray paint. You may need two coats.
Step 4: Add Your Chair Armor
Using standard clear tape, add the pieces to the chair one by one. Focus on the four corners first, then the horizontal slats.
Step 5: Layers
Continue to layer the pieces on top of one another creating an armor effect.
Step 6: Done!
Add as much or as little as you want, in the end you have a really cool piece!
