Woods and The Sea: Estonian Design and the Virtual Frontier explores how Estonian designers have stoked creative spirit and forged distinctive goods through their sense of place and history, from stern Soviet orthodoxy, through whirlwind globalisation, to a wired and forward-thinking social nature.

Through narrative storytelling, Woods and The Sea: Estonian Design and the Virtual Frontier takes the reader to the studios of designers such as Bruno Tomberg, who fostered Modernism amongst a small, underground arts scene, to the industrial shops kept by Matti Õunapuu that bridge Olympic-era Tallinn and Tupolev with contemporary folding electronic scooters, and to the remote rural practices of a youth movement made prominent by the country’s early embrace of internet culture. With essays exploring both the history and future of Estonian design alongside these portraits, Woods and The Sea: Estonian Design and the Virtual Frontier is a vividly evocative documentary-style design and art book and academic treatise.

Featured designers include Bruno Tomberg, Maile Gruenberg, Tarmo Luisk, Martin Pärn, Reet Aus, Mait Summatavet, Kaarel Kurismaa, Peeter Kuutma, Aet Tamm, Mare Soovik, Mari Adamson and Heldur Pruuli.
