What Doesn’t Break this Metal Furniture Makes it Stronger

Some materials have a fascinating property of changing properties when deformed – some become brittle, but others become solid and fixed in place. This fabulous series of ideas plays on the latter type.

Imagine laser-cutting metal tables, then (by hand) expanding those flat surfaces to solid three-dimensional furniture objects that not only stay in place but can support plenty of weight as well.

E27 is just getting started, but already their award-winning works in progress are already quite refined – they are elegant, complex, curved pieces that show their origins and physical evolutions. First tables, then coat wracks – who knows what is next? The sky may or may not be the limit, depending on how far this metal can stretch!
