Wood Award, Designers' Saturday

Project assistant:
Philipp Grundhöfer

The Association of Swiss Master Carpenters and Furniture Makers launched the “Wood Award” on the occasion of its 125th anniversary. The nominated objects are presented on pedestals. These stylised cubic shapes with minimalist faceting are varnished with the RAL shade green 6011. For a long time this shade had been the standard colour for woodworking machines. Besides the selected objects as the main actors the exhibition consists of three elements: the pedestal, the work drawings as an extended legend explaining the objects on display, and the light. The production process is an integral part of all of the objects. The idea is that visitors to the exhibition find themselves within the atmosphere of a wood workshop.
