Wood as a unique biopolymer composite

All days of the fair
Location: Stebrna Hall

Wood is not only a board in a stack, which can be used to make  a very nice product by, but in its structure there is hidden much more. The diversity in the timber structure is an inspiration for the exhibition space represented by the Department of Woodworking at this year's Ambient Fair. Starting from various building levels of wood, we present many possibilities of using this material, many of which are innovative also in the international space. So you can see interesting exhibits from solid wood, for example, precious violins, wooden eyewear frames, wooden bicycle, wooden sups, further thermally or chemically modified construction wood, various plate composites, insulating foams made from tannins of crust, hydrogels made of cellulosic nanofibrils and many other interesting items.
