Material Connexion (MCX), one of the world’s leading design resources for textile and materials, selected Wood-Skin as its chief designer to envision the future of temporary installation design at the Rho Fiera (iSaloni). MCX sought to create a fluid and dynamic environment that would accommodate visitors and business meetings.
Wood-Skin addressed these needs and challenged the common notion of wood, showing how a single sheet of Wood-Skin can be reconfigured to produce any number of 3D surfaces. The result: seating, reception and meeting spaces that highlight customization, flexibility, and functionality with high-end design at the fore.
