Description

Wood has the power to fascinate and inspire. From time immemorial, this versatile and renewable raw material has been used by designers from every discipline. Today, new finishing technologies are broadening the range of its uses and making surprising solutions possible. Wonder Wood presents this timeless material as it is being used today, and documents a selection of some one hundred current international projects by celebrated designers, architects, and artists whose cre-ative and innovative approach to the material makes their work compelling. For selected projects, interviews with the designers provide an in-depth look at the creative process and its results. A second section shines a spotlight on selected woods, wood-based materials, wood composites, and finishing technologies and presents project examples that use them. An alphabetical index provides background information on the designers represented in the book.
