When it comes to furniture, the right piece placed in the right exact place can change the entire design of a room. But the question is how and where could you find those rare creations that you so dream of?
For a long time the minimalistic, rigid shaped objects have dominated the furniture market and have been the primary choice for most of us.Today tough you can turn your attention to a different approach, one that
is more in equilibrium with nature.
Matthias Pliessnig is a Philadelphia designer who sought inspiration in the old technique of steam bending once used for building bows and boats. By using heated vapors the designer shapes wood into organic, unique ways,creating in the end beautiful, intriguing structures that can better express the nature of wood.His pieces are curvaceous benches that express a certain fluidity contrary to their purpose of sitting.
The combination of sculpture ,design and material knowledge the designer obviously owns led to a beautiful collection where technique and art merged perfectly.
His amazing work can be seen in a permanent exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington.
