The series “Pressed Wood“ is based on the traditional technique of bent wood, but Johannes Hemann combined it with pressure to get a different look.
The first step is to put pressure on fresh cut wood and divide it into its fibres. Thereafter, the traditional bending technique is used: steaming the wood and bending it into moulds. Finally, glue is added to the fibrous wood and it is pressed into the mold. Due to the wood being divided into its fibres, it is possible to achieve a much smaller radius or to change the natural round base to a rectangular profile, for example, or any other shape that might follow.
