Could textile techniques be transferred to other materials? What would a sewn piece of furniture look like?

Woven or knitted, tanned or colored, folded or sewn, textiles enchant with their variety and endless possibilities. They promise comfort and warmth, are soft and smooth, and remind us of handwork lessons and fashion shows.

WOOD COUTURE is a experimental furniture project, where the seating surface is made out of sewn plywood. Treating plywood like a fabric by bending and sewing it is entirely new and gives rise to new formal and technical details. This is the point at which an interesting conversation between the wooden material, the needlework details and expectations related to material begins.
