Hej!

[EN] Do you enjoy art? Here there's art in the form of empty snus tins nailed to a wall like they had been aligned on a chessboard (with openings for the pin-up posters' more tickling areas). Worn, turquoise surfaces meet orange ones. Oily chains, transport belt constructions levelling two floors. On a column in the packaging hall stencils for the wood definitions have been tested. All are remains of the Fårbo saw mill that was active between the 1940s to 2002.

The area has now been turned into a logistics centre and commercial zone for smaller companies.

[SE] Gillar du konst? Här finns konst i form av tomma snusdosor fastspikade på en vägg som om de anpassats efter ett schackbräde (med luckor för vikutbildernas mer kittlande vyer). Nötta, turkosa ytor möter orangea dito. Oljiga kedjor, transportband i två våningar. På en pelare vid paketeringen har schablonerna för virkesbenämningarna testats. Allt är rester av Fårbosågen som var aktiv från fyrtiotalet fram till 2002.

Området är nu omdanat till logistikcentrum och arbetsområde för mindre företag.
