Zamak (zinc alloy) and Wood Stool Made By Maor Aharon.
The project was born out of an assignment at the Holon Institute of Technology (H.I.T) in Israel (majoring in industrial design) and started as a research of Zamak and casting technique.
While Trying to introduce a new casting technique i discovered that as a result of a low melting point and the unique structure of this SP pipe i can cast this metal into it (http://www.superpipe.co.za/).

Every two-three legs are made of a single cast that goes through the Wood top and into the pipe. After the metal cools down i can remove the pipes and reveal the metal legs.

The stool top was then sanded and the legs remains untreated to maintain a memory of the making process, which is also present on the top in the burnt edge of the wood.
