gilli kuchik of israeli design group bakery presents 'elastic wood' at milan design week 2010.

flexing the chair into shape

wood has long been used as a primary material for producing furniture, in which designers
have connected, carved and bent the natural material into various 3D shapes.

'elastic wood' 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. here, 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.
