“Wood in process” is a design experiment of a Dutch collective of designers called Envisions. They find ways to transform materials and offer new design solutions. The motto of the group is that experimentation leads to innovation. Their research was presented last year at Milan’s week of design which focused on presenting design discoveries rather than on finished designs. It has been realized thanks to the cooperation with the Spanish firm, Finsa which produces wood-replacement materials, medium density fibreboard (MDF) and chipboards.The collective, composed of design students from the Design Academy in Eindhoven, note: “Although it functions only as a rich conceptual field, the preliminary stage of production of products has unlimited possibilities and deserves all the attention”. The collective examines the possibilities of the artistic product, which is underestimated and rarely explored in the industry.
WOOD IN PROCESS focuses on everything but the end product
