Wood and Wool has its starting point in the interest of young Romanian designers to embrace the knowledge of local craftsmen. Showcasing works by 26 Romanian designers, the exhibition focuses on the uses of natural materials in contemporary societies. Both Romanian innovation and tradition have recurrently referred to natural textures and, most frequently, to wood and wool. To highlight the ongoing dialogue with heritage and skilful craftsmanship, the exhibition presents recent design works inspired by tradition. Evoking natural materials, the exhibition encloses also a section dedicated to Romanian ceramics. Natural dyes, craft, handmade objects and traditional processes are kept part of the current identity and translated through design in objects of everyday use. Wood and Wool centers around this translation.

Wood & Wool is a project of Romanian Design Week. The exhibition was made possible in collaboration with the Romanian Cultural Institute in Vienna.The Romanian Cultural Institute in Vienna is the first Romanian cultural institute opened overseas over 10 years ago. The headquarter, with its marvelous architecture, it is located in the 4th sector of Vienna and it’s the place where the Austrian and international audience cam meet Romanian culture. The generous space is always hosting concerts, exhibitions, theater evenings, readings, film screenings, presentations and Romanian language courses. In July 2014, The Romanian Cinematheque opened here and in August 2014 the special ICR Library was opened to the public. Starting September, the headquarters of The Romanian Institute will transform in a special Romanian Concept Store, where the most spectacular appearances in the creative industry in Romania will be displayed.
