moulding

Moulding is a method where glued wooden slats or veneer are secured in a mould and pressed into the desired shape under great pressure (the method is also known as lamination). By moulding it is possible to give shape to very large items. One may carry out highly complex bending by this technique. The only limitation is the size of the mould and the properties of the wood itself.

One example of moulding in PP Mřbler’s production is the Circle Chair. For its construction, Sřren Holst Petersen and master journeyman Henry Fisker created a machine where thin pieces of wood are run through a ’glue roller’ and then buckled and shaped in a mould. Subsequently, the special glue is hardened by high-frequency sound-waves.
