New roaming of Conexión by Finsa. Spaces connected with wood will bring the public of Zaragoza closer to the nodes that connect us with a forest to a surface decorated in wood. The exhibition, focused on design and crafts related to this material, began its journey in Alicante and from Monday continues its international journey at the University of Zaragoza, where it can be seen over the next three weeks at the Edificio Agustin de Betancourt.
The approach of the exhibition is formulated in six modular structures designed by the architect Ángel Rocamora: raw material, transformation, distribution, design, trade and client.
In these six modules, in which 220 Finsa boards are integrated, ethnographic objects of diverse nature are shown, such as historical drawings of furniture design, traditional carpentry tools, original materials of the wood industry… Physical elements in which technology is interlaced by means of virtual reality, which offers the visitor the possibility of knowing the productive process of wood thanks to virtual reality glasses.
The combination of physical and digital elements aims to provide a sensory experience of belonging and discovery of wood, a material present in many facets of everyday life, symbolic in traditional crafts and paradigmatic in the creation of environments. For this reason, in addition to paying tribute to the forests and the productive and recycling cycle, the show exhibits the architectural and interior design projects in which this material takes on a special role in the narrative of the space and the object.
