Plywood: Material of the Modern World

Light, strong and versatile, plywood was the surprising material celebrated in this world-first exhibition

This exhibition is now closed at V&A South Kensington

Featuring groundbreaking pieces by Alvar Aalto, Marcel Breuer and Charles and Ray Eames, alongside an incredible range of objects from planes to skateboards, this exhibition told the story of how this often-overlooked material made the modern world.
