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?
