Next door to Superstudio Piu, “Sparkling: ecologically correct” showcased an interesting collection of green products and furnishings that approach sustainability in different ways. Ballarini offers a green line of pots, pans, and kitchen tools made from 100% recycled aluminum featuring 100% recycled paper packaging, and 100% biodegradable plastic handles.

These colorful Ecomat bricks offer a new way to build permanent and temporary structures. They’re completely composed of recycled materials and their lightness significantly reduces CO2 shipping emissions.

Designers Jean-Maire Massaud and Marc Berthier worked with the brand Environment to create the e’pack collection that premiered this week in Milan. The collection features eco-friendly materials ranging from sustainably-harvested wood to discarded materials like salvaged maritime shipping beams and vintage military shelter components.
