This is the final result of the 1926 Jensen replica we’ve made after winning a tender from the FORD HOUSE museum in Michigan (Grosse Pointe). Again a model that only could be designed after we mastered the tensioned (stretched) techniques. The original blueprints inspired us to go for a 2 % slope as it was designed more than 100 years ago. Furthermore we added a square top and integrated all the elements of our Motor Yacht models. If you one day happen to be in Detroit, don’t hesitate to visit the museum, check out the pool with replica diving board and have supper in the Continal.
Our “Tensioned” techniques (stretched) consist of combining different materials in an assemblage without using glue.
- First we carve specific beams out of selected IPE Brazilian Hardwood from the Tabebuia family. This wood is FSC certified.
- Then we fit 100% IPDM rubber joints precisely between the beams.
- This is then assembled with transverse tension bars out of MS 316 Marine Stainless Steel to create a solid unity.
This selection of materials has been based on our ecological ideology to make products that are 100 recyclable.
