Innovative approaches to furniture design using new timber bending methods are featured in a new booklet published by Swinburne’s Faculty of Design.

'Technology transfer: Design in a Scientific Research Program’ is the result of the faculty’s contribution to the seven year Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Wood Innovations.

Their objective was to create products that could be manufactured from new materials and technologies developed by other projects in the CRC.

The Wood Innovation CRC began in 2001 and included the University of Melbourne, Swinburne University of Technology, state governments, research organisations and industry partners.

It investigated the modification of timber by applying microwaves, adding resins in the structure of the wood fibre and by combining new timber production technologies to establish wood as the sustainable material of choice.



‘Technology transfer’ describes the work of designers from Swinburne’s Faculty of Design, led by Professor Helmut Lueckenhausen, who were an integral part of the research team.

The 64-page booklet includes work by postgraduate students and faculty members Professor Lyndon Anderson, Lotars Gintars, Christine Thong and Blair Kuys.

“Including designers and product design engineers at the outset of the technology development can greatly enhance commercialisation of new technologies,” said Professor Lueckenhausen.

“Physical scientists and engineers can develop new materials but they need highly skilled artisans and tradespeople to translate their ideas into real prototypes. This booklet highlights some of the top-quality creative work of designers using timber in ways that metals and plastics are used in furniture design.”
