BEAMBOO

Bamboo furniture

Designed & Produced  

2007

  • Bamboo produces 30% more oxygen than trees.

  • Crop roots can be harvested every 5 years.

  • It can grow up to 1 metre per day.

  • It has a higher tensile strength than steel.

Because of it's hollow structure bamboo is machined into thin rectangular strips. These strips are generally glued and pressed together to make products like chopping boards and flooring. 

This project proposes to use these bamboo strips for the construction of bamboo I-beams which can be cut , glued and riveted together to make strong and lightweight eco-friendly furniture structures.
