Young designer Elisa Strozyk has created a daybed using wood as material for the fabric. The quilted wood that she uses shows a process using a paper-thin wood veneer which she turns into a hybrid of hybrid of marquetry and traditionally quilted textiles. The furniture object, based on a found piece from the 1950s, was designed for The Thread That Binds Us exhibition curated by Barbara Brondi and Marco Rainò at Plusdesign Gallery during Milan Design Week 2012.
