Metal is apparently more flexible than you would think and this characteristic has become a particular obsession of Moran Barmaper who has experimented with inflating this material to create pieces of furniture.  Using a wooden framework to support the metallic "balloon" which is inflated, the wood and inflated metal are combined without the use of screws or glue.  The expanded metal locks into place around the wooden supports creating joints and a rigid structure.
