Alberta Cup Home Furnishing Design Competition follows the concept of "Design for People's Living and Life". The world's rapid population growth and fast economic development drive a growing demand for wood products. The development of engineered wood strand panel products, such as oriented strand board (OSB), plays an increasingly important role in making more efficient use of limited forest resources. This competition aims to promote the use of OSB materials and Aspen wood materials in all aspects of home space. It also promotes the development of custom furniture design and enhances the exchange and cooperation between design enthusiasts and enterprises.
