Outside the Box is a forum for industrial and interior designers, artisans, furniture makers, manufacturers, builders, architects and anyone interested in or involved in the wood products industry (broadly defined) to meet, share ideas, and identify gaps in the market and possibilities for new product development and innovation. Our goal is to let users and makers of products interact and explore opportunities in a casual, relaxed atmosphere that encourages creative ideas and fosters new partnerships. Our group moderators will post takeaway points and resources that the group wants to share on a private blog. Supported and organised by the UBC Centre for Advanced Wood Processing, a training, education and technical services organisation that promotes the growth and development of value-added manufacturing with wood, our world's only truly sustainable and renewable construction material.
