The timber structure adorns the atrium of a private residence in India and looks like a flower with elliptical petals. The timber structure sits under customised glass elements that are fitted with extra shading devices to shield against the strong sunlight.
The support structure was made from steam-bent laminated timber beams in ash wood. Our partner firm Burgbacher Holztechnologie was responsible for laminating the components. Winkler timber bending specialists crafted the components into the right shape. Ash wood has the advantage that it is easy to bend, even into tight curves.
