Birch Veneer Bench
Bent Solid Wood Design: -The innovative and strong L-leg construction is based on the technique of bending solid wood. Artek's L-leg is made from birch wood carefully selected and collected from the Finnish forests; only high-quality flawless woods with no structural errors are selected.. -The quality wood piece is sawed open at the end in the direction of the fibers. Thin pre-glued pieces of birch veneer are put in the grooves, enabling the wood to bend to form a 90-degree angle with the help of pre-steaming and microwave heating.. -The form-pressed leg piece is placed in a microprocessor-controlled drying chamber, assuring the legs' long lasting quality.. -After being fine-sanded by hand, the beautiful and strong L-leg is ready for assembly and is easily fastened with screws to the underside of the seat, eliminating the need for complicated joinery.. -Thanks to this unique production method, the L-leg keeps its shape forever, lasting from generation to generation..
