V&A: Plywood — Material of the modern world

Isokon Plus Director, Chris McCourt was engaged as the exhibition’s technical expert on plywood. Working with the V&A’s Keeper of Furniture, Fashion and Textiles, Christopher Wilk, they travelled Europe, discovering traditional and modern uses of plywood and examples of plywood products.

We loaned our Marcel Breuer Short Chair mould and a plywood seat pressing. Our workshop is the setting for its film on the process of making plywood furniture.
