Fuorisalone 2023: Unwanted furniture 2!

Amsa - Gruppo A2A and OpenDot are waiting for you at Via Tortona 5 from 18th-23th of April

Unwanted Furniture is a project by OpenDot and Amsa – Gruppo A2A, which has been created with the aim of raising awareness among citizens in adopting a new attitude at what is too often considered waste, when in fact value needs only to be recovered, updated, re-designed and re-made. As in the case of furniture objects.

Presented in the occasion of Milan Design Week 2022, for its second edition Unwanted Furniture is exhibiting 10 new objects redesigned by 10 young designers under 30 in via Tortona 5, a special location within the Tortona Rocks circuit.

OpenDot and Amsa launched a Call for young designers and selected 10 designers to be responsible for the redesign and rebirth of 10 unwanted objects collected by Stooping Milano – the Instagram account that facilitates the exchange of disused furniture in Milan.

Each designer has been assigned a strategy and a piece of furniture collected by Stooping Milano:

  • Martina Petiti → Minimising → coat rack 
  • Collettivo Finestre Rotte → Wrapping → pouff 
  • Giuseppe Franceschino → Mixing → lamp 
  • Anna Veronica Bragazzi → Repairing → stool 
  • Gaia Rubino → Making → lamp 
  • Manitu Creative Studio → Brut design → shovels 
  • Ewoud Westerduin → Joining → stainless steel drawers 
  • Cecilia Raimondi → Bundling → shutters

Vi aspettiamo dal 18 al 23 aprile in via Tortona 5!
