This display features design projects that engage with questions around environmental stewardship and the sustainable use of wood.

It prompts us to think about material use and its consequences, encouraging engagement with a topic that is now at the forefront of the debate around the climate crisis.

This display is part of Make Good: Rethinking Material Futures, a ten-year project supported by John Makepeace OBE.

Works include furniture and objects by Playfool, Formafantasma, Gitta Gschwendtner (pictured), Mac Collins, Sebastian Cox, Fernando Laposse, Marjan van Aubel and James Shaw.
