In the latest issue of the HYPEBEAST Magazine (click here), the subject of design ingenuity is explored with a compelling idea that through imperfection, comes beauty. In this video we take a look at the complicated labor of sculpting and structuring the Modernica Fiberglass Shell Chair. The process of creating fiberglass-covered resin was developed in 1949, when the concept of plastics was relatively new. It’s a primitive hands-on process that is juxtaposed with a precise science of chemical combinations. People intuitively handcraft the fiberglass and sculpt areas that require further definition. Finally, the press pushes resin where it grips the thousands of fibers, unifying them into a single structure.

Pick up a copy of HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue 8: The Perspective Issue, which retails for $12 USD over at the HYPEBEAST Store, as well as at select stockists and newsstands worldwide.
