A uniquely designed piece of wooden furniture is made using a special technique called steam bending.

This intriguing object is actually a piece of furniture which was designed by noted wood artist Matthias Pliessnig. The ‘Amada' is a large white oak bench which was steam-bent to get a  curvaceous form. The bench has been designed in a way that allows the sitter to face multiple directions.
