Welcome to the opening of the exhibition “Oltre Terra. Why Wool Matters”!

In the design exhibition “Oltre Terra. Why Wool Matters” the Italian design studio Formafantasma investigates the development of the extraction, production, and distribution of wool products in relation to the biological evolution of sheep.

By looking at the development of wool production, artefacts history and material culture, this exhibition aims at unravelling the complexities of the cooperative symbiosis between animals, humans, and the environment.
This is the first solo exhibition of the internationally acclaimed design studio Formafantasma in Norway.

A ticket is required to attend the opening.

All guests must be present in The Lounge by 18.20 for the official opening ceremony.
