“Nectar Gallery” has initiated wood processing and design workshop of Finnish designers Rudy Merz and Peter Schmid and as a result of an open call it brought together a group of visual artists, architects and designers of various experiences and generations. The first round of the study program took place in October 2015. It focused on selection and processing of wood material. At the same time participants and leaders of the course agreed on the topics of the program and developed the concept of the final exhibition. Since the wood needed to dry it was decided to schedule the second part of the program for May and June 2016. During the second phase each of participants produced sketches of chair design. Later Rudy Merz and Peter Schmid worked on the refinement of the suggested ideas. Thanks to simple equipment that was acquired for the project the Nectar Gallery turned into an improvised woodwork atelier where participants produced ten prototypes during a period of five weeks.
