Bamboo as a Material素材
Bamboo provides relaxation and comfort. The Japanese have been using its light, flexible and elastic characteristics for a long time to make a wide range of products used in everyday life, such as structures, furniture, fishing poles, and baskets.
Bamboo is a strong plant that grows fast. People believed that gods resided in bamboo and have used it as a mystic and lucky plant since ancient times. Bamboo is used to make tools for daily use and tools for special occasions such as the tea ceremony and traditional flower arrangement. For this reason, bamboo has played an important role in traditional Japanese culture.
Characteristics of Bamboo
Tough and flexible
Bamboo is both tough and flexible. Its toughness makes it durable, and its flexibility makes it easy to work with. Traditional fishing poles are made with bamboo using the strong elasticity produced by its toughness and flexibility.
Antibacterial and purification effects
Bamboo harvested in fall and winter has great features and repels insects, making it the best material for furniture.
Fast growing and environmentally friendly
Bamboo is amazingly strong. Generally, bamboo grows 14 to 15 meters tall in the first 60 to 80 days. Then, it stops growing taller, and takes about three years to become mature and a useful resource. Using bamboo also helps address problems caused by neglected bamboo forests.
Why bamboo furniture is good for health?
When sitting on bamboo furniture, bamboo helps us to straighten our back, which reduces the burden on our lumbar spine.
Bamboo furniture fits our body and its flexibility prevents us from slouching by straightening our back and reducing the burden on our lumber spine.
Promotes blood circulation and relaxes the body
Blood flow deterioration is one of the major causes of dullness and fatigue. The elasticity and unique joints in bamboo furniture exert appropriate pressure on important points of our body, and this promotes blood circulation.
Prevents house dust
Products made from chemical fibers and plastics can create static electricity which tend to collect dead mites and house dust, both of which cause allergies. Bamboo furniture reduces static electricity and prevents house dust, which helps keeping rooms clean.
Why bamboo furniture is convenient?
