Exotic Hardwoods + Concrete Works Factory Tour

This two-for-one tour takes you to some of the design industry’s most interesting— and dare we say ‘exotic’—factories. The first stop is Exotic Hardwoods, an environmentally responsible company that strives to expand the selection of unique sustainable veneers and carries products that inspire everyday design sensibilities. The largest supplier of FSC-certified woods on the West Coast, the showroom will offer a peek at FSC-certified panels being manufactured. Following the tour of the factory, participants will head to ConcreteWorks Studio, a design firm specializing in the craft of concrete, located at 1137 57th Avenue. Founder Mark Rogero has developed a unique casting process, using 80% recycled concrete content, that enables new and limitless possibilities for an age-old material.
