Munich-based designer Stefan Diez created this lounge chair title EC03 Eugene for the internationally respected design brand, e15. The EC03 Eugene, made with locally manufactured plywood and sustainably harvested wood veneers, offers ample comfort and style without excess material. It’s both minimal and highly expressive with a tasteful sense of humor.

Designers Valeria Cifarelli, Matteo Prudenziati, Davide Rampanelli, and Alessia Zema make up the experimental, participation-based design collective, Controprogetto. Always using discarded, scrap materials, Controprogetto puts into practice the “retraining of unusable materials and resources” to create a number of different products and projects, including furniture, interiors, temporary settings, and structures for public spaces. With the objective to share knowledge and educate people the potential capabilities of scrap materials, these passionate, young designers are playing a key role in changing the way we look at our fading resources.
