Good vibes at the Fabbrica del Vapore , a creative hotspot, that seemed to be fully dedicated to green design this week.
Tommaso Mancini  presented the Ortobrick, a clay soil brick containing seeds of herbaceous plants that can be used for guerilla gardening.
For people that lack time and the green thumb needed to tend to a full garden, Margeritha del Piano  offers a solution. Her Take Away Landscapes are tiny gardens in a box, made in one of her workhops. These pieces of art are photographed, and gardeners-to-be can frame these pictures and enjoy them at home.
Milano Makers  is a new non-profit organisation, stimulating local production in Italy and international collaboration between designers. Ricette in Resina Naturale  is one of the projects on show and is initiated by Carmine Deganello . Designers were invited to experiment with a new type of natural resin. Dutch designer Roel Huisman  experimented with one adjustable mold that could be used to create a full range of tableware.
Most designers that experimented with the resin, made new versions of their own designs. Jeroen Wand  recreated a vase originally executed in gypsum. Designer Pepe Heykoop  used the resin material as a filler for a new range of leather candelabras, recently featured  on Inhabitat.
