Kino Guerin_why knot furniture

This really pushes the limits, complex multi-dimensional furniture, bending rigid wood to achieve beautiful flowing movement is not easy. These pieces appear effortless. The maker Kino Guerin uses a variety of woods like walnut, zebrano, and Wenge veneers, coupling them with laminated and formed plywood. Guerin say’s "I gave myself a challenge a few years ago, one that would become my leitmotiv: (recurring theme to you and me) From now on, I would make furniture with no legs no crossbars or supports". He creates furniture that goes as far as tying itself into a knot. So is this furniture sculpture or furniture design?

What's in the New Issue of Good Woodworking

 

Good Woodworking issue 287

In the new issue of Good Woodworking, it's all too easy as woodworkers to think that use of wood is confined to furniture so in GW287 we challenge your perceptions by looking at the history and growth of trees, their forestry and what can be built from ancient and/or huge ones.
