THE MAKING OF MASONITE

The masonite hardboard factory is located in the north of Sweden in Västerbotten. The company has been processing wood for generations in places such as Sorsele, Burträsk and Vännäs. Folkform has studied the production process and developed an innovative intervention, that sees the assembly line and the hand made come together.
