the long fibre strands of bamboo are highly elastic and tensile. the nodes make it kink- resistant. bamboo has no growth in thickness. the fibrous culm has no annual rings. a grass and not a tree, bamboo is light and very resilient. you can eat it and process it in many ways. the longitudinal cleavability of bamboo is unlimited due to its strictly parallel fibres. but working with bamboo requires craftsmanship and good tools. bamboo has a clear material language that conveys its characteristics, such as straightforwardness, elasticity, resistance, strength and vitality. the bamboo is an impressive personality, which for me is a fascinating partner in my work.
