Having been without forests for a thousand years, wood has now become an available resource in Iceland – a country without forest culture. Björn Steinar, The Iceland Forest Service and a handful of talented designers address the problem in a co-exhibition – based on mapping of the forest resource.
Having been without forests for a thousand years, wood has now become an available resource in Iceland. While increased amounts of forest utility can be expected in the coming years, innovation in the sector has not been growing in utilization of forest produce and therefore 80% of annual production is sold as wood chips to a silicone-metal factory.
For this reason, a number of designers have been invited to a co-exhibition where Björn Steinar will produce prototypes from submitted proposals – based on mapping of the forest resource.
Skógarnytjar takes the first steps towards an improved secondary-industry and reinforced forestry with an exhibition of prototypes of furniture/utilities.
