Forests through design
The forests and use of them is one of the biggest issues of modern time. It effects the living conditions of the future and concerns the other species we’re sharing the planet with. 80% of all the terrestrial species live in the forest biotopes. While providing material forests are dignified entities with important role in the world – what does this mean for design?
This exhibition is part of a project gathering understanding about forests, trees and wood material and seeking answers to the forest dilemma from designers perspective.
The forests are also studied through first-hand observation and documentation in forest trips.
