Wooden Mesh by Diego Vencato

August 2nd, 2013 by retail design blog

Transforming wood, making possible that not only it could be flexible or soft, but it could also behave exactly like a cloth, was the idea behind the project. To turn wood into fabric we had to break the continuity of its surface, which we obtained by dividing it into pieces. Wood, organized as in polygons, was then coupled with the fabric, which acts as a support and a binder at the same time.

This is how we created “Wooden Mesh”, a compound – realized through a high-tech patented process – which combines a rigid material (parent material) to a flexible support (secondary material).

The goal was to move beyond the hand-crafted production to create an industrial product which had a more suitable cost for the market. This was possible thanks to the major contribution of Alberto Martinuzzo, founder of Albeflex and “father” of the soft wood. Now the two-dimensional surface of a piece of wood has been completely transformed to become as smooth and soft as fabric.
