Ive decided to use plywood for my final design, as it can be moulded very easily which will be a key factor for my design as there are lots of curves. Plywood is also very strong and can be finished in many ways. The image below is an example of how well it moulds especially curvacious shapes like this magazine rack. i have also chosen this material as it is in my opinion a very organic and calm material, therefore linking to the emotion which ive tried to combine into my design.
For the legs if decided to go with stainless steel as again it can be moulded easily is a very elegant looking material and is very strong.
For the spine i have also decided to use stainless steel as it is easily molded an again is very strong and looks very elegant.
