IdeasxWood a contest by Tabu / III Edition 2020/2021
The second edition of Ideas x Wood, the most important contest of the wood industry, with a strong educational intent, conceived to promote the knowledge of wood and its enhancement as a noble, living and renewable material, concluded last September with an exclusive award-giving ceremony in the prestigious Terrazza of the Milan Triennale.
Promoted by Tabu – the company located in Cantù, leading reference in the dyeing technology of natural and multilaminar wood – and patronized by FederlegnoArredo, FSC® Italia and Adi, the competition has received in its second edition as well as 462 projects from all over the world. The participants, divided into two categories – professionals under 39 and students of the Universities of Architecture and Engineering, Design Schools and Institutes and Fine Arts Academies – have proposed new geometric, organic or combined patterns, aimed at the creation of multilaminar veneers, industrial inlays, three-dimensional surfaces and state-of-the-art boiserie.
