Overview

Written By Eric Pfeiffer & Dung Ngo.

Bent Ply is the first book devoted to plywood in modern design. Written by Offi's head designer, Eric Pfeiffer, and author of American Contemporary Furniture, Dung Ngo, Bent Ply delivers an authoritative angle on the art and ingenuity of plywood craftsmanship, which has demonstratively bridged the gap between technology and nature.

Bent Ply contains numerous illustrations of the classics of bent ply design, including furniture from Alvar Aalto, Michael Thonet, and Charles and Ray Eames, plus examples of its appropriation by the military, which include John F. Kennedy's PT109 boat and the DeHavilland Mosquito — both fabricated from plywood.

Eric Pfeiffer

Designer: Eric Pfeiffer

Eric Pfeiffer served as the VP of Design at Offi from 2000 through 2004, coordinating product design and directing the Offi innovation process. During his prolific tenure at Offi, he designed most of the products that were introduced and was credited with several design awards, including the 2003 ID Magazine award for the Offi Perch Lounge. Also while at Offi, Eric co-authored a book called "Bent Ply: the Art of Plywood Furniture", which features the step-by-step making of the Offi Wave Desk.

In January 2005 Eric started his new design studio "Pfeiffer Lab" with the goal of exploring the "the design of everyday objects in our lives." Pfeiffer Lab relies on Eric's penchant for simplicity of form to create useful and elegant solutions for everyday living. His reductive designs are expressed in timeless forms that recognize a product's usefulness and necessity while exhibiting the beauty and honesty of a products material.

Eric Pfeiffer is gifted with a deep understanding and passion for innovation and the manufacturing process. Therefore his designs result in affordable products with total clarity of form and function that continue to receive wide acclaim and distribution for Offi. His products have been published in numerous national and international publications, and now sell under the Offi brand in over 350 of the finest stores in the US, Japan and throughout Europe. In addition to Pfeiffer Lab, Eric is currently working on another book about design, home and the modern family.
