Suomi (Finland), known as the land of thousand lakes, has a long history of woodmaking for its huge forest coverage of 71.6%. Finnish people could nearly make everthing out of wood as I see when I was having my exchange there. Having been inspired by the traditional Finnish skis, I determined my direction of designing a furniture with simple cursive lines. I wanted to create the thing with the essence of Finnish traditons and its pure nature.
I found out three ways of bending wood after research, and I "play" with all the methods with the help of the teacher Kimmo. Based on the knowleage I learned from the experince, I decided to use Lamination bending for its feature which suits my project best.
After tried other ways of bending wood, I turned to Lamination method for the feature that it is much eaiser for me as a begainner and more efficient. I could shape the wood in the way I want it to be without waiting for too long or its integrality.
