about the collaboration
envisions reached out to Finsa, a wood manufacturer based in Santiago, Spain. As corporate companies often stick to the road of proven practices and clearly defined objectives, envisions felt to be a valuable asset to the manufacturer. Sharing this feeling, Finsa swung open its factory doors to envisions and all twelve, selected designers were invited to infiltrate Finsa’s production grounds and set free their individualised creativity. We’ve uncovered new applications and uses for Finsa’s complete range of materials, which includes chipboard, medium density fibreboard (MDF), veneer, melamine and even the raw product as printed paper, glues and inks. By tinkering with by-products and sheet materials as well as the manufacturer’s established techniques, the designers crafted twelve distinctive processes which showcase the pioneering potential of the unhindered imaginations of industry outsiders.
