The BAT_02 is in the last steps of the design phase and starts to have its final equilibrium-shape. We are happy to announce that next to the collaboration with Foster + Partners, we have the sponsorship and knowledge of Tesler + Mendelovitch, who are masters in combining wood veneer with textiles. Have a closer look at the ‘Capitonnage’ (double curvature) effect of the wood veneer.
