This third title in the Materials series looks at wood in many of its forms, from the past, present and future.

Featuring stimulating and inspiring photographs Wood takes us on a jorney through this living bundle of cells. From the ancient process of coopering to technologically advanced extruded wood we are offered an insight into the production and uses of timber, its forms and derivatives. Products featured vary from the beautifully crafted work of furniture designers and architects to familiar everyday objects such as pencils and toothpicks. This plant, which at its most basic level is a collection of tube-like cells, carries with it the history of our inventions, our buildings, our culture and our food.

No other material has filtered into our lives for as long and in as many ways as wood. From furniture to buildings and from mass production to one-offs the book is a companion for designers, architects, specifiers, buyers, students or anyone interested in the subject of materials and their use in modern design.

This book explores and illustrates the uses and types of wood and introduces new advanced materials and new methods of processing, making it a material for the future. Divided into relevant chapters it includes the various incarnations of wood from raw and processed timber to board and products derived from wood. Each page describes a specific subject, which is illustrated with inspiring images and with information broken down into digestible sections, which provide the reader with specific details.

Wood accompanies Plastic and Glass as the third title in this acclaimed Materials series. Future titles will look at ceramics, foam, rubber, textiles and metals.
