Molded Plywood Side Table

If you are like me, you love the classic bent plywood style of modern furniture. The Tarantula Table by Kino Guerin is a beautiful example of what can be done by using pressure and steam to mold wood to do your bidding. Popularized in America during the early 1940′s by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, molded plywood had been used in the production of furniture since the mid-1800′s.

A popular technique perfected by modernist designers from the 1920′s, this style of furniture was used extensively in the 1930′s by Dutch architect and designer Alvar Aalto. Bent plywood furniture lost some of its popularity as other materials like fiberglass and later plastics became a more affordable option.

Furniture maker Kino Guerin carries on this tradition in modern furniture and even push the limits of the process experimenting with noble wood veneers and new techniques to create plywood laminates which are molded into elegant and artistic modern furniture designs.

The Tarantula Table is a sleek and curvaceous side table made from the favored material for molded wood furniture, laminated birch plywood. The then applies a beautiful veneer of lacewood, a wood often used to create musical instruments and sculpture that is noted for its complex grain and intricate appearance. A single square of darker wenge wood is inlaid to add interest to this modern side table with a perfect touch.

Each Tarantula Table is signed by Kino Guerin and makes the perfect balance of simplicity and complexity in any  modern decor. It is available from Artful Home for $1950.00.
