the bended wood of the native americans

The technology to by timber by steaming it we learned from native americans.

They used that hundets of years ago to build buckets and boxes.
For this project I adapted their technique of bending timber to form constructive furniture elements.
This elements can be used to design multiple types of furniture.

Stool design for the project- but actually without bended wood edges. Stackable homage to the “ulmer hocker”.

Proof of concept prototyp of 90 and 135degree bended edge piece.
