about the exhibition

In 2017, Finsa and envisions presented an experimental collaboration between designer and industry where the emphasis was on the process, instead of the finished product. It marked the beginning of a long-term joint effort to create inspiring examples of wood-based materials.

> wood in progress <, is the second chapter of this creative love story, presenting six of the previously created researches—now industrially tweaked and altered in the factories of Finsa in Spain. With the applied but imaginative impression of the formerly handcrafted materials, the work of wood in progress shows us the unique potential of Finsa’s wood materials, while giving us distinct clues of Finsa’s captivating manufacturing process.

After showcasing > wood in progress < in Milan and London, we strived to introduce the collection in a new light at Dutch Design Week. Creating a unique, voluminous display that constantly shifted perspective, the exhibition succeeded in sparking inspiration from multiple angles.
