Challenging the limits of wood

Fascinated by the flexibility and strength of different woods, this project examines the limits of the material. Experiments with steam bend rattan led to the design of the stool Konkylie.

Konkylie is made of 3 mm steam bend plywood shells. 

Wanting to utilize the quality of the material and push the limits of strength and durability, Konkylie has a simple yet strong construction using a minimal of material.
