Swedish plywood container and curved glass lid.
Swedish plywood container and curved glass lid Bombo is a multipurpose container made of Swedish phenolic plywood with a thickness of 7 millimeters and boxed with the “folding” technique and a heat-curved glass lid.
The “folding” technique (from the English “folding”) is a process that is carried out on the panels to obtain boxes and structures with edges from a single panel without edging.
Starting from a flat panel, “V” cuts are made which touch the underlying surface with the vertex of the cut. The operator then folds the panel along the groove gluing the two parts and thus obtaining an edge usually at 90 degrees.
Normally, to obtain the furniture shells, we start with separate panels that are fixed by means of pins or screws to form the corners. The angles thus obtained inevitably show the junction as they expose at least one edged side of the panel. The folding process, on the other hand, makes it possible to equally obtain these bodies by joining panels cut at 45 degrees. This has the advantage of not showing any edged sides on the outside and making the body appear as a continuous piece.
Folding is made with almost any panel of the wood industry: from melamine to veneer, to polymeric leaves. However, polymeric sheets and ultra-flexible papers are sometimes preferred as being very flexible and ironable they allow to make the “V” milling and folding, keeping the piece together through the surface and thus avoiding the breakage of the same during folding.
