Formafantasma, an Italian design studio, has decided to focus on Finnish forestry. 

The exhibition examines the interconnections of paper pulp industry, the management of forests and tree plantations, as well as design practice. The studio’s practice is research-based, investigating the ecological, historical, political, and social forces shaping the discipline of design today.

Cambio is an ongoing investigation into the extraction, production and distribution of wood led by Formafantasma. The title Cambio derives from the medieval Latin cambium meaning ‘change’ or ‘exchange’. It also refers to the anatomy of a tree: the cambial layer is a membrane that runs around a tree trunk enabling the growth.

Formafantasma has teamed up with the Finnish furniture company Artek and seeks to establish how the extraction and use of timber in Finland has evolved over time.
