German surface and textile designer Elisa Strozyk shows us how to turn a familiar material like wood into an unconventional surface. “We are used to experience wood as a hard material; we know the feeling of walking across wooden floors, to touch a wooden tabletop or to feel the bark of a tree. But we usually don’t experience a wooden surface which can be manipulated by touch.”

She has created some very pretty tactile wooden surfaces by breaking down the wood into a grid of triangles, making is flexible so that it can be transformed manually in three dimensional ways. Depending on the geometry and size of the tiles each design shows a different behavior regarding flexibility and mobility.
