The new Via Lambrate zone hosted schools like the Royal College of Art, Design Academy of Eindhoven, and the University of San Marino. The later showcased a series of student projects that challenged designers to go beyond the established limits of materials.
Furniture made from unusual combinations of materials show that sometimes, form follows sustainability. Students from the University of San Marino created projects from flour, salt, malt, yeast and granular gelatin, banana fiber, liquorice root, and brown rice (shown above).
This mobile gardening platform at Zona Lambrate comes complete with its own form of peddle-powered propulsion!
Every year, Milan Design Week shines the spotlight on an incredible range of cutting-edge designers. We’re thrilled to see an increasing number of them building environmental responsibility into the design DNA of their products.
