Sustainable Steam Bentwood Chairs by Dohoon Kim
Designed and manufactured by steaming wood processing technique in order to bend the wood while being steamed, produces such a good wooden chair which is sustainable in design. This modern chair uses thin and small amount of wood where cause of the material itself give the ability of elasticity and durability. This modern wooden chair is designed by Korean designer. His name is Dohoon Kim, who has created a series of steam bentwood chairs.
Here’s more on the the making of this chair from Dohoon himself:
“Firstly the technique called ‘bending wood’ is pretty well known for and has been used in great examples such as Thonet’s first steam-bent beech cafe chair and Alvar Aalto’s laminated berch stool. These examples have become essential works in modern design history. While there are many more versions of this technique developed for various purposes, I’m working on designing and making objects based on ‘Steam bent-wood’ and ‘laminated bent-wood’ skills. Among the rest, the ‘Steam bentwood chair’ that is one of my latest works shows its organically structured form made with steam bent-wood technique”
I’m loving the smooth work of Dohoon and the details on how each pieces of wood connecting through each other. Dohoon stated also that this is a light chair and very strong. Looking for twist chair? Then you need to get yourself this modern steam bentwood chairs!
