What is ist?

Wood and water is an experimental exploration of the material wood and its properties.

What is the Topic?

The project questions the current processing of the material wood and its appearance.

Why does it look like this?

The wood is given the opportunity to move naturally, to react to its environment and to be part of the design process.

What is special?

In today's processing of wood, it is common to process wood against its natural properties. My project deals with the natural properties of wood and their influence on the design process.

What is new?

New is the processing method of the wood and how the material is handled. It gives us a completely new view of the material and reflects the origin of the wood.
