Products from "Laminated Bamboo Lumber Project"

LINLIN, made from bamboo laminated wood with natural oil finish. Design by Yousuke Shimizu. LIN came in W70×D80×H260mm, is one of Laminated Bamboo Lumber Project's Collection under Product Project Party.

'Product Project Party designs furniture and miscellaneous goods based on various project themes. In 2005 and 2006, they presented at 100% Design Tokyo. Six professionals who design varying objects like cars, household appliances, and furniture, gathered together to form this collective. The members are Spring Daisuke, Mihara Teppei, Hiroyuki Kato, Haruki Senda, spring water positive Yu, and Yusuke Tsujita.

Bamboo is attracting attention as a material with high environmental performance and rapid growth.

However, the required efforts and high costs make it a difficult material to handle. So it is necessary to establish original know-hows that are distinct from wood working. "Laminated bamboo lumber project" is a project in which we investigate the many subjects concerning glued laminated bamboo, make use of the properties of the material, devise logical products, and use this resource in a proper way.' -Design Tide.
