Designing an object depends on the technical possibilities of how the material can be shaped.

It is called the language of the material. I decided to use wood because it’s a natural material which has been used for thousands of years in several cultures. Designing wooden products requires many factors to take into account, such as its hardness, resistance to moisture, grain direction, and careful craftsmanship. This is an experimental project where the material was pushed to its limit as creating organic shapes with a new, cost effective way. The collection represents three applications of this new bending technique.
