Wood and design are a prioritised development area in Orsa Municipality.

The municipality is a forested area with large-scale timber production. Wood processing is part of Orsa’s history. Several industries have used wood as their raw material, including Orsaplattan, Kan toilet seats, Lamellträ and now a major establishment by KLH Solid Wood Scandinavia AB, a company which is building a manufacturing industry in Orsa.

The Predator Centre Wood Design Forum is a showcase for solid wood and design. In the long term the building will be developed into a hub for wood and design in Dalarna.
