Our role Exhibition design

Team Matteo Renna,Stefan Fahrngruber

We came up with a circular design that values production waste and turns it into exhibition furniture and scenography. Curated by ISOLA the exhibition features product and furniture designs that minimise their environmental impact or are created out of industrial waste material.

The projects chosen give a new life to discarded products, raising awareness to favour a more sustainable lifestyle and giving this unhealthy consumption cycle a stop.

With the support of Fiction Factory and OneEightyOne we started to experiment with CNC waste, leftover production- and construction materials. As a result we shaped the perfect zero waste stage for products and furniture designed by young talents from around the world.

In close collaboration with the sustainable thinker Marije Remigius (FictionFactory), for the exhibition scenography, we have reused 70 sheets from Wikkelhouse production, recladded a staging system with 10 sheets of Petfelt from Van Gogh Museum. We have reused 25m2 of plywood hidden behind fabric in the Rijksmuseum panels at an exhibition designed by Studio Formafantasma and leftover from recycled plastic sheets.

The light installation with the title of the exhibition has been designed from rest material and underlines the urgency of the topic. A clear and bold statement of what all designers presented in the exhibition stands for.
