How do you bend wood? Magic? I hear whispers in dark corners about using a vacuum and a bag, and you can bend the hard and brittle into new shapes. Or maybe heat and steam will get wood to move? Or start with pieces of thin veneer, the thickness of paper, and glue enough of them together to become wood? I’m on it, but if you know how wood bends, please let me know, as it’s a driving force behind my woody desire. The picture above resembles a Kodawood chair we bought off Ebay, but ended up reselling when we bought a couple matching Selig Chairs. I really love the way the seat and back bend. See mo rad floppy wooden chairs below.
The Cherner arm chair.
The Plycraft Lounger.
The Eames molded plywood lounge chair.
And from this millennium, the bamboo Spring Chair.
