Based on the famous L-leg, which was designed by the architect Alvar Aalto for the Finnish furniture company Artek, an experimental study project investigated the potential and design possibilities of glued and bent wood. In close cooperation with Artek, 28 students of architecture at the ETH Z├╝rich, and students of object design at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, not only turned the material on its head, but also questioned the sensuous qualities of the objects, their construction as an architectural place and sitting as a social event.
he volume Formful Wood. Explorative Furniture presents the surprising and unknown aspects of a well-known material, illuminates the respective creation process, and reflects on its context in a variety of essays.
