RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The challenge was to manufacture in this minimal material thickness (8 mm) of solid wood a staple piece of furniture. It is essential to know and accept the basics how to work with solid wood. You have to accept grain direction and to follow the traditional way of jointings. Matched with influences and techniques from other professions like the architecture, steel bending, Origami, … It is a physical and manual design development. Because of the choice of the material solid wood that is still alive, it is inevitable to test and check all the time the construction and the aesthetic. Step by step the puzzle is together and each component is in the same way important than all the others for the whole construction.
