Natural material combined with modern aesthetics: dukta is a unique type of incision process that makes wood flexible. “With our new method, wood, a material that is usually known for being very stiff, becomes soft and flexible,” says Swiss designer Serge Lunin. It is a process that he and his former student Christian Kuhn invented at the Zurich University of the Arts in 2007. As Lunin describes, the material gains textile-like properties and a significantly wider range of application because of the fine incisions. After receiving various design awards, Lunin and Kuhn found the company dukta GmbH in order to bring their products to the market.
