Continuing the melting wood series…

The Melting iPad Dock

I made this iPad dock for my brother, there is also an iPhone version.

Once again, wanting to create a purposeful/ practical piece that represents a frozen depiction of an unstoppable and free flowing action, I decided to make an iPad dock that looks like it melting around the iPad and off of it’s platform.

Liquid Wood: Purple Heart

Base: Zebra Wood

Inspired by Bonsoir Paris’ – Duremen Series http://bonsoirparis.fr/object-design/duramen-series/

Wood purchase from House of Hardwood LA – houseofhardwoodla
