Italia RicicliAMO

Sustainable innovation

Concept

Organized on the occasion of the Italian Design Day 2022 – promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation – the exhibition showcases Italian materials and products made from agricultural, industrial, or post-industrial waste recovery. A digital catalog – curated by Valentina Cannava – was also created for the occasion.

The eleven companies featured in the exhibition and the catalog include heterogeneous sectors and produce innovative products and materials starting from the recovery of waste, demonstrating the high level of research and technological innovation that has always distinguished “Made in Italy.” They also share the same motto: “Waste, from problem to resource.”

The staging of the exhibition is conceived to be circular and sustainable. The Hexae displays are made with recycled parquet slats. The i-Byobu – used as a backdrop for the products – is made with wood combined with the innovative i-Mesh recyclable fiberglass fabric. Both products will be reused at upcoming exhibitions. The captions accompanying the products are made with laser engraved recycled cardboard. Finally, the exhibition catalog is only available in a digital version to avoid wasting paper.
