Bamboo

LE BAMBOU

fabulous bamboo;
it's strong, water resistant, renewable, and beautiful
it can be cut, bent, rolled out, stained and painted  
it has been made into furniture, flooring, fountains, utensils and even bicycles
it has been mimicked, copied, and reproduced
it has been glued, nailed, tied, and joined.
and it is called
the material of the future

mimicked in a 70's chair

copied in a tall elegant bookcase
a little air of The Sheltering Sky

it has inspired contemporary designers
including Tiffany's

au revoir.
