Doreen Oddy, guild marks manager of The Furniture Makers Company, said: “Evolution of Tradition is shaping up to be an unmissable event that will demonstrate the world-class mastery of Bespoke Guild Mark holders. We are delighted that two reputable industry trade bodies like the Timber Trade Federation and the Confederation of Timber Industries are supporting it.”
Benedetto Antuono, CTI communications coordinator, said: “The CTI is always pleased to help promote innovative projects using wood in furniture, design and architecture. In this view, Evolution of Tradition represents a great opportunity for talented wood designers to present their creation and raise awareness of the incredible qualities of this sustainable and versatile material. We look forward to collaborating with the Furniture Makers Company and we are sure the exhibition will further push the boundaries of innovation and creativity in design.”
