"Wood bending is a technique with a rich tradition and history. When I was asked to create a contribution on this theme for this book, my first thought went to furniture as such…
Will furniture of the future be made of wood? I hope so, because wood as a material adds an earthy and natural element to our lives and homes. I am certain that as long as furniture is made from wood, bentwood will remain an important element – due to its character, tradition and legacy.
To illustrate this idea, I have designed the eternity symbol in bentwood."
