After successfully kicking-off their first long-term collaboration with an industrial partner, the Spanish wood manufacturer Finsa, it’s time for a new book from Envisions. The book ‘Wood in process’ will offer a unique insight into the collective research and will reveal how the experiments of the enthousiatic Envisionaires pushed the limits of Finsa’s materials to new innovative opportunities. For this book, Envisions teamed up with Studio Aandacht, drukkerij Zwaan, text editors Floor Kuitert & Lauren Grieco and photographer Ronald Smits in order to create the best possible addition to your book collection, starting with a preface by Hella Jongerius. You will find all the samples and interviews of the participating Envisionaires Aukje Fleur Janssen, Iwan Pol, Thomas Trum, Robin Pleun Maas, Jeroen Van De Gruiter, Sanne Schuurman, Roos Gomperts, Roel Deden, Simone Post, Vantot and Elvis Wesley. Special thanks to Tatjana Quax and Salvatore Caltabellotta.
The book designed by our own Ben Lambers will be presented at the Dutch Design Week 21 – 29 October, where Envisions is nominated for a Dutch Design Award in the category design research, you can vote here.
