BENCHMARK - Davide Galli

The project consists in a series of modular furniture pieces for outdoor spaces, adjustable to the necessities of the final user, and to the place where they are positioned. The basic element is extremely resistant to loads, and once the oxidation process ends, it gets an iridiscent copper colour: corten steel. The green part is a soft lawn which allows everyone to appreciate the benefits of a comfortable raised seat, as well as ornamental plants and the possibility to farm vegs.

ALCHIMIA - Ginevra Taccola

This project was born in order to find a natural solution to the synthetic plastics, and also to improve the resistance of modern bioplastic through the use of a natural component. Doing research, the designer discovered that inside the peel of oranges there is a substance which makes them hard and resistant, therefore she decided to use it to develop a new material. That is how OrangeBI was invented. OrangeBI is a 100% eco friendly material, since it is made of industrial waste like the orange peel, which is not toxic, does not have disposal costs, degrades in 4 days and decomposes into the ground becoming also a good fertilizer.

OrangeBI can be coloured in mouldings thanks to its density, and you can print on it with digital printers, it gets very well the texture on which it is laid, and can also be thermformed and laser cut.

PRESENCE & PATIENCE - Sandra Lundberg

Presence is a light-object that encourages interaction. The light pulsates rhythmically in a soothing (blue) color, creating a harmonic atmosphere. Presence reacts to movement. When you get closer, the color of the light intensi es. This invites to a playful contact between the object and the viewer. The aim of Presence is to create fun, meaningful and even unexpected experiences for the viewer. Presence stimulates contact regardless of age, physical or mental capacity. It is intuitive and speaks directly to the senses. Presence is all about being present.


Patience is a table object in the same spirit as Presence. By touching the surface of the object with your hands, you can influence the brightness and color of the light. It is a direct and intimate way to play and interact with light. Together the two objects Presence and Patience form a dynamic duo that complements each other.
