Made of birch plywood, the pieces were produced in slices on a CNC mill. “It is composed of 1265 sections over 85 layers which were combined into 220 numbered pieces before being assembled by hand,” Donders writes.

The bench measures 220 cm (7.2′) long and 100cm (3.3′) wide.

From concept to finished piece took “just under 500 hours.”

“My work is an example of how traditional craftsmanship and 3D design work together,” Donders writes. “It’s still a manual labour of love.”
