‘Elastic Wood’ at Milan Design Week 2010

May 10, 2010 Furniture Design

‘Elastic wood’ by Gilli Kuchik of Israeli design group Bakery, focuses on wood joinery and seeks to explore what happens when they become flexible. Its production is influenced by the process of over molding, where two materials are used to complete an enhance each other’s characteristics. 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.
