The Vsurface is an exercise in harmony between the inherent physical properties of a material, in this case cherry hardwood veneer and the form and forces that are superimposed on the material. Utilizing the structural bias inherent in wood grain each module is bent perpendicular to the direction of the grain into the third dimension at distances based on the predetermined thickness of the bone-like member. This is an intuitive move which satisfies basic physical principles which say that skinnier members have less shear force to resist in their cross section and therefore can bend more. The the surface that results is wave-like and natural, a product of the slightly varied thicknesses of each module across the surface.
Veneer hardwood are thin slices of wood, usually thinner than 3mm. Compared to wood, one of the primary advantages of using veneer is stability oriented along the grain.
