ADVERTORIAL - 

Pieces of veneer are pressed together to form a sturdy whole. The pieces of veneer are left overs from the industry. The technique stems from the industrial process of laminating where a sheet of veneer is used to cover the less attractive material underneath. Here, veneer is used throughout the whole object. By pressing the different layers of veneer together, combined with solid wooden parts, the material is shaped and gains its strength.

Studio Jeroen Wand uses a simple vacuum technique which implies they don’t need to make difficult moulds, which also means they don’t need to use extra energy or materials. With one vacuum machine the studio can produce lots of shapes and products, so it is also very sustainable. The manual process allows for freedom in arranging the different parts of veneer, where each object can have an individual, unique structure.

This material will be exhibited during MaterialDistrict Rotterdam 2020, 23-25 June in Rotterdam Ahoy, the Netherlands! Get your free ticket here
