In collaboration with the artist Sebastian Neeb German designer Elisa Strozyk, known for her beautiful veneer carpets which are manufactured by the German company Böwer, applied her ‘wooden textile’ principle for the first time to a furniture. ‘Accordion Cabinet’ is currently on show at the D³ Design talents at tis year’s imm cologne.
Here some explanations of the designer herself:
“The processes to design a flexible wooden surface are its deconstruction into pieces, which are then attached to a textile base. I am using different textiles like silk, Lycra or micro fibre as backings. Depending on the weight and stiffness each surface shows a different behaviour. Lycra for example is very fluid and turns the wooden textile into a highly flexible surface.
The wood is cut by hand or laser cut, and all tiles are stuck by hand to compose a textile-like surface.
I am working with veneer wood leftovers from wood workshops.”
