A Treasured Wooden Object

The Wood Awards has partnered with London-based creative agency Disegno Works, founded by the quarterly journal of design Disegno, to create a special editorial project that celebrates wood.

Some of the most distinctive qualities of wood are its characterfulness and warmth. Unlike its more industrial counterparts, wood is a material to which people are drawn, and to which they can become attached.

To celebrate this, we contacted past Wood Awards winners, as well as architects and designers who use wood in their everyday practice, to share their favourite wooden object – a personal totem, knick-knack, objet d’art or tool to which they feel a particular connection.
