The technique of wood bending has been in existence from a long time even back around the Ancient Egyptians. This wood bending art has been reinterpreted by young designer from Germany named Johannes Hemann with new series of furniture “Pressed Wood”. In the first step some pressure is applied on the wood that has been cut freshly to remove the bark parts and fibers and thus the overall branch would mostly be naked and also less thick. After this, the rounded base can be very easily modified into a rectangular section. After reaching this point, it shall be steamed and then bent out in amalgamation with the glue until the perfectly designed structural framework is not obtained. Thus one can see that how carefully and craftily has been this art performed so that the overall structure is no way behind in quality and appearance as it should have been. After following the steps perfectly, the required design is obtained by designer Johannes Hemann.
Thus after this excellent piece of craftwork the designer is capable of obtaining a very strong contrasting effect. The components which are used would themselves help up in obtaining that.
On one side, there will be a segment which has been not treated and shall maintain its usual state while on the other side there shall be a manipulated part. The first series of “Pressed Wood” was presented by Victor Hunt that was made by unification of the two branches that are curved in a U shape. This whole structure was also combined up with other different types of materials such as glass, different types of woods as well as leather. Thus overall structure obtained is either a table or a coffee table or a chair or stool and lamp. The design is exceedingly well and lovely to watch.
Due to his perfect and unbelievably good designs the young designer from Germany has been nominated on the “Young Designer” category in the German Design Award 2012. Apart from this nomination he has already two time-honored with the nominations of Design Newcomer Award of the Federal Republic of Germany in the years of 2010 and 2011.
