The bold and open-minded experimental wood designs of the Wood Studio will occupy the gallery of the Alvar Aalto Museum from 12 August onwards. The Wood Studio is a course run by the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture, in which students explore all opportunities in experimenting with the many aspects of Finnish wood.

The exhibition to open in the gallery at the Alvar Aalto Museum will offer a selection of the Wood Studio projects from the time of its establishment to the present. During its 12 years of operation, the Wood Studio collections have amassed a sizable number of experimental wood designs: objects, light fittings, furniture, and elements for interiors. This exciting and pioneering exhibition will allow visitors to take a peek into these archives.
