Flexible wood? Wood has always been considered as a rigid and static material at first sight, today we bring you different solutions of flexible wood materials:
Bendywood:: is a flexible wood that is obtained through a thermal – mechanical process and whitout chemical elements, this process makes the material able to work by hand and without heat. Its applications are many in furniture, carpentry and interior design.
Snijlab: Using manufacturing techniques like laser cutting it is possible to make all product features in a single production step and in a single material. This cuts down production effort and logistics and makes for a beautifully simple product.
Dukta: in this case we see how using such as basic technique as cutting saw can offer us surprising results at the level of flexibility and also contribute a high aesthetic value to the natural wood.
Mr A-Linea: a sideboard furniture based on the flexibility of laser cut wood.
TST Soft:is a panel made of natural wood veneer with flexible behaviour, on a rigid support and which can be padded with foam, creating the soft effect on the wood, which produces also a soft effect to the touch. In its application to panels has also acoustic insulating effect.
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.
