CONVERSATIONS - Rethinking the way we do things

Making prototypes is an integral part of our design process at BA2 Wood Oriented Furniture Design. We use it for finding new ideas and creating new forms. Letting the materials make some of the decisions during the build can yield the most interesting results and strengthens our communication through these compositions.

The exhibition features our recent work in collaboration with OFFECCT and the Möbeltapetsering department at Stenebyskolan. Exploring traceable, renewable and recyclable materials, both traditional and experimental, we took different paths in developing our concepts.

We observe how habits change in order to create furniture that adds genuine value to people and society. We have to create places for creative meetings and discussions to generate ideas. These conversations happen not just between people but also materials and objects. Today and in the future new demands will arise and affect how we meet in public and private environments. We need to keep the conversation going and continually rethink the way we do things in order to achieve something new.
