ASWOON BENT PLYWOOD FURNITURE

by , 08/15/05

Aswoon/Susan Woods Studio in Brooklyn designs and fabricates furniture and architectural additions for interiors and exteriors, as well as providing a platform for high-end artists and designers. The studio, located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard is providing furniture for this year’s Semi-permanent design conference in NYC.



Among the new products emerging from Aswoon is a line of bent plywood furniture and room dividers. The pieces have a remarkable movement to them, reminiscent of those ribbony peppermint candies you see during the holidays. The striated coloring and curled edges of the plywood give them an absolutely unique look, both refined and accidental.

They evoke gigantic versions of curled birch tree shavings, turning the scale of the personal interface on its head, as well as the perception of fragility. [...]

    I can’t help but feel that some designer’s websites are too hip for their own good; Tom Dixon’s comes to mind, and this is another example. The room dividers, while beautiful, lack even the simplest info, like dimensions, etc. Slap a price on it; don’t be timid!
    Give the visitor something to work with!

    Not sure what to make of that sofa. The room dividers are quite gorgeous, however.

    Looks terribly rendered.

    Beautiful stuff, but that “sofa” looks terribly uncomfortable!
