REBA-Formbambus / to deform bamboo

REBA-Formbambus
REBA-Formbambus

My project utilize the flexibility of bamboo to design a chair, and provide a new method for furniture. Through a series of tests, I find veneer made of bamboo has a perfect bending effect for its texture. So, furniture, chair for instance, could take advantage of this character. Following the principle of triangle structure, all parts of a chair whose total weight is lighter than wooden one are connected together for stability. Evidently, the flexibility of bamboo is reflected in the connected component, and provide a comfortable elasticity for sitter's back.
