Paul Cocksedge uses a novel process to fuse incongruous metals, Via Damnmagazine
Cocksedge utilised temperatures well below freezing to create a seamless bond between two metals that otherwise do not adhere. Liquid nitrogen causes metal to contract by one-2000th of a millimetre. As the metal returns to room temperature and expands to its natural dimensions, the components then remain bonded, eschewing the need for bolts, screws, or other fasteners. “What’s really exciting is that we’ve fused materials that in normal circumstances you cannot bring together”, enthuses the designer, whose fascination with testing materials and desire to make projects difficult for himself are things he shares with Ron Arad.
