Bending Technology

Wood that is carved this thinly often breaks or loses its shape when used. Until now it has been standard practice to use sheets of veneered wood, or plywood, but there is a limit to the thinness and pliability that can be achieved with this material.

Now, using our special bending technique we have been able to achieve hitherto unseen levels of bending workability whilst maintaining the strength of the wood.

As a result, we have created a series of products that combine this curviness, durability and pliability even when carved to a thinness of 0.8mm.
