Our Sustainable Design class, in partnership with Recuperiamoci is happy to announce that 4 objects made by our students will be exhibited during the Salone del Mobile in Milan!

Recuperiamoci is a design company whose main goal is to rehabilitate convicts by letting them make sustainable objects and by then letting them learn a profession. What our students do is offer Recuperiamoci their projects as a creative contribution.

 Thanks to Recuperiamoci and most of all to the brilliant creativity of our students, this year 4 objects will be displayed in the “Young and Rubicam” office in Via Tortona 37 during the Salone del Mobile, from April 18th to April 22nd.

 These pieces of sustainable art are:

       “Aprile” chair and table. Made by our Spring 2012 LdM students Daniel Reyes, Nicole Desjardins and Manuel Gonzalez with pneumatics and bed slats.

       “Droid” table lamp. Made during the 2011 Fall semester by LdM students Camila Biteli, Liliana Savage and Sandra Bergstrom with 2 car front foglamps, 2 piston rods and a disk brake.

       “Achille” floor lamp. Made by LdM students Eduardo Reyes and Fernanda Verissimo during Fall 2011 using the wheel of a Fiat 500, the lamp of a Volkswagen Polo and an iron pipe.

 Good job guys! And of course, thanks to Andrea Parigi, LdM Sustainable Design teacher!!
