Ont om skog 
A thematic exhibition from the design programs of HDK-Valand´s in Gothenburg.

The lungs of mother earth, intricate networks of ancient beings, home to millions of complex eco systems and a source of renewable material - A constant factor in human history and resourcefulness.

Many believe forests to be part of the solution to the ongoing climate crisis. But what is the best way to treat our forests? Should we let them grow and work at their own pace or should we harvest them and make use of them as a resource? Perhaps something in between?

In this exhibition, design students from HDK-Valand, campus Gothenburg, are approaching these questions from their own perspectives. Our design programs are founded on artistic grounds, which often leads to exploratory and multi-disciplinary design methods that result in both tangible objects and open questions.

Exhibition stand: HDK Valand Campus Steneby

Come meet students from the bachelor program Wood Oriented Furniture Design situated in Dals Långed.

Under the Surface

The understanding of the underlying process of our every day products is becoming crucial for the value chain of furniture production. The demand on social, economic and ecologic awareness pushes the need for an improved design process.

Students have explored this through the theme past, present, future and this is their take on it.

The exhibition shows the result and an explanation of the process behind the furnitures and different possible approaches to furniture design; what’s under the surface.

Wood Oriented Furniture Design is a bachelor program based on a material focused and craft driven design process.
