How They are Made

 

Steam Bending

  • wood fibers follow the curve in the back leg
  • stronger
  • more attractive
  • more efficient use of raw materials

 

Mortise and Tenon Joinery

  • Engineered for maximum mechanical strength

 

Coopering - curved and tapered

  • seat and backrest are made up of individual pieces of wood cut to precise angles and joined to obtain the desired curve.
  • final shaping provides a thicker center - strength where you need it - and thinner edges for a refined  design profile.
