弯曲的木头
Wood Bending

蒸汽热弯工艺是利用蒸汽箱加热木条的一种木材加工技术。通过给木条加热加湿使木材变得柔软,易于围绕成型器弯曲以产生特殊的形状。设计师在初接触这项工艺时就看到了这项工艺的潜力,并产生了将这种过去的、传统的生态的技艺复兴的想法。

在过去的几个月里,设计师一直致力于探索这一主题,试图寻找属于自己的具有创造性的方式来创作不同的产品。设计师主要关注的两个参数是木板的厚度以及弯曲的角度。蒸汽热弯主要是用于弯曲木材,设计师对木材的扭曲着迷不已,并将这种元素应用到每一件作品之中。

Steam bending is a wood-working technique of heating strips of wood using a steam box. The applied heat and moist makes the wood pliable to easily bend around a former to create a specific shape. When I was first introduced to this technology, I immediately saw the potential, as well as the magic. I fell in love with the idea to bring back to life old, traditional and ecological expertise. 

Over the last few months I have been researching the subject thoroughly and trying to find my own ways of creativity to form different products. The two main parameters I am focusing on are the thickness of the wood and the angle of the bend. Wood bending composes of mainly bending the wood, however, I found the twisting of the wood fascinating and implemented this into every product. The big challenge in my work is to adjust the esthetical part of the twist to be functional and useful for the structure of the product.

咖啡桌
The Coffee Table

咖啡桌主要由三根近乎相同的弯曲的木条制作而成。三根木条弯曲成U型,用以固定中间的桌面,桌子腿也轻微的扭曲并与相邻的桌腿贴合,形成稳固的支撑。扭曲的桌腿是将木材从原始状态弯曲几近90°,将原材料的应用达到极限。

Built from 3 similar wood bend strips. All the strips are bent at first to a U shape holding in the center the top surface of the coffee table. The table legs are slightly twisted and touch the other strip next to it to form a strong and steady leg. 

The twisting of the table legs is considered to be pushing the raw material to its extent. Bending the wood almost to 90 degrees from the original state.

凳子
The Stool

创作凳子有几个步骤。首先,将两根木条使用同一成型器同时弯曲成U型。然后,使用三角形成型器将木条的两端彼此之间分离用以制作椅子腿。最后,在分离的两端中插入另一根弯曲的木条使椅子腿固定。

There are a few stages in the creation of the stool. First, bending two strips together in a U shape, using only one form. After this, a triangle form was used in order to separate the strips from each other and this is how the legs were made and stabilized. Lastly, another bended wood was inserted to hold the legs in position.

镜子
The Mirror

将一条长木条温柔的弯曲用以固定圆形的镜面,木条的两端轻微的扭曲以便在悬挂时可以贴紧墙面。木条的中心部分切除一条,形成凹槽,用以更稳固的固定镜面。

这个镜子是设计师系列作品中最温和,最不具侵略性的设计作品。

One long strip of wood bent gently in order to hold a round mirror. The two ends of the wooden strip are twisted slightly in order to be pressed against the wall when hanging. To hold the mirror firmly, a thin slit is cut from the strip in the centre of wood. 

This product is the gentlest and non-aggressive wood bending out of my range of items.

架子
The Shelf

架子是由一条长木条的两端弯曲而成的,中间水平的部分用于置物。架子的独特之处在于两端轻微的扭曲,用以和墙面贴合,省去了用以悬挂的构件,使整个架子浑然一体,优雅干净。

One long strip of wood, bent on both edges. The middle part is to be used for modern shelving solutions. The uniqueness of the shelf is that the edges are slightly twisted and can be self- attached to a wall with no hanging accessories, keeping the shelf at a very clean and elegant look.
