Flexible wood II.
After the post Flexible Wood, we contacted with some companies who work with this material and taking advantage of their peculiarities, get soft effects in wood.
This week, we have received some samples of flexible wood, but as veneer form for covering, so now we can give free rein to our imagination, adapting them to much more organic forms.
Flexible wood veneers have a common feature among them: are attached to a stand or cellulose foil, latex or similar to, that gives them flexibility and resistance to breakage, respecting the minimum radius recommended by the manufacturer.
This product is not new on the market, but is evolving in terms of the chipped and broken fibers, which are increasingly improved. Some of these veneers can flex even in perpendicularly to the wood fiber without breaking, which is unthinkable in sheets without this processing. Others are already painted and can be applied as a decorative paper without having to cover them with a protective layer.
Here you can find 4 examples:
– Lignaflex by Leeuwenburgh
– Sanfoot by Marotte
– Flex by Hubler
– Fleece n flex by Sg veneer
These materials are just few examples about what is possible to do with wood in terms of flexibility. From Materials & Design Innovation we have identified more possibilities, and we love to apply all this knowledge in product creation and improvement.
If you have a project where you need the material accomplish with singular characteristics, do not hesitate to contact us, we will look forward on different options and help you to find the best solution.
