Hinge

This is the outcome of a long experimental process of bonding one synthetic material with another through heat.

A steady hinge was formed between two materials by only using Alcantara heat and pressure. Since none of the usual attachment materials are needed, this connection can be called “weightless”. The synthetic sheet is attached to its base by using a heated metallic stamp that melts the two materials together. The result is a very unique rivet-like look. Now we won’t have to recycle bonding material, we won’t have to pay for bonding material and we wont have to deal with the oldfashioned looks of bonding material.
