Seeing The Wood For The Trees
Strong, light, flexible, attractive and renewable, wood is perhaps the ultimate raw material. Integral to our lives for millennia, its future uses are bound only by the limits of our collective imagination.
Tomorrow morning we might clean our teeth with recyclable wood fibre brushes
in front of nano-crystal mirrors made from wood-based composites. Then, at breakfast, read the news electronically on the wood-based semi-conducting polymeric screen built into kitchen tables. And later at work, use fibre-based displays that change according to our schedules and moods.
