The inside walls are sheathed in an amber-colored veneer about the thickness of two sheets of paper, cut from a single log of an African moabi tree.

3form Architecture was involved in the entire process from geometry rationalization for the heat forming to the structural, hardware and lighting design for installing the compound curves.
