From furniture to buildings and from mass production to one-offs the book is a companion for designers, architects, specifiers, buyers, students or anyone interested in the subject of materials and their use in modern design. This book explores and illustrates the uses and types of wood and introduces new advanced materials and new methods of processing, making it a material for the future. Divided into relevant chapters it includes the various incarnations of wood from raw and processed timber to board and products derived from wood. Each page describes a specific subject, which is illustrated with inspiring images and with information broken down into digestible sections, which provide the reader with specific details.
