Undercut is a theory furniture project which combines two materials — Mahogany timber and cast aluminum — to make new furniture style without using any additives or connectors.
The versions for the items are made from good wood and polystyrene foam for those legs. I smooth the surface of the design by means of a Computer Numerical Control cutting machine and manually complete the legs in my workshop. Following the parts of the design are embled, the foam and wood components are buried in a sand mold. Molten aluminum is then poured through specific holes on the design. The hot metal melts the foam and requires its own position forming the strong legs of this piece of furniture.
