Doshi Levien’s Impossible Wood chair for Moroso was inspired by a
Seventies-era Martin Puryear sculpture in curved wood, but its
construction is pure 21st century. Using a material known as liquid
wood—it’s part wood fiber, part polypropylene, and mixes the patinated
look of timber with the fluidity of plastic—the British design couple
created a chair that mimics the appearance of bentwood classics yet owes
its improbable curves to injection molding.
