No, we have not destroyed the properties of steel, we have simply stretched the limits of what is possible. What makes Straw unique is the way the tubular steel has been shaped.
Instead of conventional tubular steel forms created by soft curves, Osko + Deichmann have kinked the steel – the most direct and dramatic way of shaping a tube. The broken pipe is known as the most direct way to deform a tube, but placing the kinks in these positions has made the construction strong, and the kinks integrate with the independent expression.
