Designing BOW is a small effort to bring some key features of nature in our living rooms. Astonishing plant tendrils and frogs are the key source of inspiration.BOW is a single sheet of steel bent into a chair.It is a LOW-CARBON footprint product, as metal joining process is not involved.Stackable metal cutouts can be made using a blanking die. steel can be colored on customers demand using electrolysis process.Bending process can be carried out after electrolysis treatment without cracking the film, as it can stretch during bending.BOW can be deployed at the customers door-step, which can develop emotional link between the two.
