Bend Chair 3


by young furniture designer Guillaume Pille

Crafts must make way for the increasingly automated furniture industry, young designer Guillaume Pille, finds this a significant loss.

His graduation design, 'Bend Chair 3' revives craftsmanship. It's an exploration of a broader understanding of the material wood.

The chair is made through the traditional process of steam bending solid wood. The design of the chair goes even further. It is based on the smallest possible radius. Straight lines with uniformly curved edges, an orthogonal concept. This sets the Bend chair apart from the many steam-bent organic chairs. Bend to the limits!
