Elastic Wood

April 17, 2010

Wood and Elastic make a wonderful, technically sound, yet a visually appealing combination in the ‘Elastic wood‘  chair, that focuses on wood joinery and seeks to explore what happens when they become flexible.

The production is influenced by the process of over molding, where two materials are used to complete
an enhance each other’s characteristics. Here, wood is used for its compatibility for home furniture –
its touch and warm aesthetic – while the elastic material is used for the purpose of transforming the
2D spread into a 3D shape. The combination of the two materials adds the aspect of flexibility to a
typically rigid piece of furniture produced in wood.
