- Context of bamboo bending
Bamboo is an environmental friendly, natural composite material which has been used in Asia for centuries. It has been explored in a more artistic style applying heat to bend the slender pieces of bamboo. By picking up the right bamboo, removing the knots and the oil, drying and preserving it, by cutting, sawing, carving, gouging, heating, inserting, gluing, assembling and nailing, the pieces of furniture have been achieved in a very artisanal way.
