Paper thin wood veneers are layered on top of each other, separated by glue. The stack is placed in a two piece mold that dictates the product's final shape. An electric current is passed through the mold, solidifying the glue and stabilizing the form of the bent veneers.The meticulous plan of the three dimensional mold, executed by CNC milling is designed to bend the veneers into shape without stretching the material and forcing it to split.
