nature-of-material-11Bakery studio was founded in September 2009 by Gil Sheffi, Ran Amitai and Gilli Kuchik, the three met and became friends during their studies at the Bezalel  Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem Israel. Nature of material is a series of stackable furniture. Every object is folded from a spread of laser cut aluminum sheet, which then bends to the final form using a bending mold.
