Warm and organic, yet imbued with strength, wood can perform in unusual ways depending on its use and setting. Working with new or reclaimed wood, bent plywood, or solid wood construction, the designers featured in this book all bring something new, creating forms from the whimsical to the elegant, the delicate to the robust. From animal shaped bookcases to the textile rugs and wooden bicycles to bark shade lamps, this is the ultimate guide to this beloved resource. Products include furniture, lighting, textiles, housewares, personal accessories and toys. Interviews follow with an international cast of industrial, interior, product and furniture designers.
