Veneer is typically used as an economical solution to achieve a wood aesthetic by covering substrates. Shifting towards a more honest use of the material, Charlotte Pommet and Elliot Kendall explore the potential of veneer on its own. They have developed a forming technique that relies on the properties intrinsic to each species and grain pattern. Both volume and strength are achieved by laminating minimal amounts of veneer together into structural profiles. As a result, these lightweight modules come together fulfilling infinite possibilities of designs and applications.
