Moulded beech wood & plywood

“Moulded wood” or “moulded plywood” is a two- or three-dimensional plywood consisting of several layers of veneer pressed into a negative mould using heat, steam and pressure. The usually alternating direction of the wood fibres in layers results in a very resistant material that is excellently suited for the production of seat shells and other moulded parts in furniture and interior design. Thanks to its high strength properties, with comparatively low weight, it is very versatile and is even used for aircraft construction. (cf. LOHMANN, 2010)
