- Our design needed to "span" as LVL beams are engineered for doing just that.
- It had to showcase the "laminations" that made up the unique aesthetic of LVL multi-ply construction.
- The production process had to capitalize on the functionality of my 3 axis CNC machine which has a cutting bed of 5'x10'.
- The object needed to be well designed with the user in mind. Ergonomics, comfort etc...
- It had to bold.
At six metres long, the reduced-edge profile along the length of the bench accentuates the impressive span that can only be achieved by LVL beam construction.
The use of CNC carving allowed for the design of an innovative joint, strengthened through the load bearing application.
This synthesis of human, machine and material results in an object that is guaranteed to be a spectacle in any environment."
