Plywood in the interior: designer furniture and home accessories

From plywood today, almost anyInterior items - furniture, zoning partitions and even sinks with bathrooms. It is ecological, practical and visually attractive. Today we will tell you why she enjoys such popularity. In the last two decades, a person has become more demanding about what surrounds him, especially if it concerns his own housing. The modern rhythms of life cause a person to look more and more towards nature. Increasingly, people change their city dwellings to country houses or seek to create their own "green corner" in the apartment. The quality of life has become one of the determining factors of a person's success. The desire to surround oneself with objects from environmentally friendly natural materials has turned for modern man into an unconscious protest against the total urbanization of society. Budgetary alternative to wood TodayDay plywood is one of the most unique materials for furniture production and interior decoration in homes and apartments. And this is not accidental. Plywood is a natural material that does not emit toxic substances during operation and has a beautiful natural pattern. At the same time, plywood is several times cheaper than a tree array, which directly affects the final cost of products in the direction of reduction. Plywood has a relatively small weight, has high strength due to its structure, easy to handle. This makes it possible to achieve the most exquisite design forms and makes plywood an ideal material for making furniture and creating interiors. It is these factors that determined the current success of the unique material for furniture production and the ability to realize the interior from plywood Style and Multifunctionality Speaking ofMultifunctionality, it is necessary to emphasize that plywood is used in the premises of any destination - from the bathroom to the living room. Everything related to the manufacture of furniture, decoration items and lighting, the erection of free-standing partitions, designer fences, zoning of rooms, walls, floors and other structures - plywood can be used everywhere. Smooth lines and shapes of the material can be combined with different design directions. Thanks to this, plywood products, be it furniture, decor elements or designer finishes, can easily fit into a room of any size and configuration. Advantages of plywood In the Russian marketA huge assortment of plywood types is available, which makes it easy to choose the right version for specific purposes. Plywood is a product that is made on the basis of different types of wood: birch, aspen, needles, poplar. Also there is plywood combined (from several types of wood), laminated, bent, moisture resistant, bakelized (this type of plywood is used in aggressive climate, sea water, aggressive environments and for construction and finishing works), marine (analogous to Bakelized, but less durable) And even color! By the way, although a tree is considered to be a more noble material, it is impossible to obtain such curved and complex forms from it, while the price for it is several times higher than the cost of plywood. Excursion to history Unique properties of plywoodWere estimated more than 5,000 years ago, but subsequently unfairly forgotten. The first sheets of pressed wood veneer were invented by the ancient inhabitants of Mesopotamia, they glued several layers of wood to make it stronger. However, the processing of wood in the modern view began only in the late 18th century in the UK. Then in the West they began to produce furniture and interiors from plywood, which was due to the high cost of solid wood. In Russia, plywood appeared only in the middle of the 19th century and was mainly used in industrial sectors: aircraft construction, weapons technology, rocket engineering, mechanical engineering, musical instruments manufacturing, etc. Furniture was preferred to be made from solid wood, which was an indicator of prosperity In the family and a dream for the majority of ordinary citizens. Furniture "simpler" still prefer to make of veneer. It is this feature of the Russian outlook that for many years prevented designers and furniture manufacturers from looking at the plywood with other eyes and appreciating all its advantages. Design experiments European experienceThe creation of furniture and interiors from plywood advanced far ahead. The most unimaginable masterpieces of design and architecture can be found in western flats, offices and European streets. Development Trends in Russia In RussiaThe design idea has moved towards plywood more recently. In search of new forms and opportunities began to try different materials and styles, more free and unusual. But on a national scale, as before, the topic of making furniture from plywood remains relevant. However, there are already separate projects of interiors, furniture items and decor from plywood. And if there is a demand, the offer will not keep you waiting. Anton Tikhonov, the ideological founder, author and technologist of furniture studio Inplywood: - The furniture design and interior design studio from plywood Inplywood was one of the first in the Russian market to produce author's and designer furniture, interiors and decorative objects from plywood. At first we were ordered furniture and accessories only for public places: cafes, offices, showrooms, but now the situation has changed. People are already ready to use plywood in their private interiors. From plywood already in Russia it became fashionable to make a wall covering, covering it with varnish or paint under the metal. In general, I believe that there is a future for plywood. This is a very convenient material, from which, using laser cutting, you can create truly amazing and functional objects.
