Stretch Bench, designed by Korean designer Tak Euy Sung is a beautiful furniture made by bending 17 layers of birch plywood. The plywood layers are curved widely in the seating area and leg area where it touches the ground. In the corner the layers are very tight which creates a solid structure. In designer’s words, “This bench is bent for two directions. I stack 17 wood layers and widen only two parts requested to bench. As if spaces we only need are stretched, only two parts we need to sit on the bench widen. The curves of bent wood give us sit area and make stand area itself. As 17 wood layers are bent, it makes beautiful curve naturally.”
