Eco-design and recycling: Nestart in exhibition for the culture of sustainability

3CODESIGN is the name of the traveling exhibition dedicated to the culture of recycling and environmental sustainability. The exhibition is based on the idea that there is an ethical and environmental need for scraps to become raw materials again: recycling and reuse must be the basis of circular economy. For eco-design “circularity” is a modus operandi, i.e. a way of acting according to which design and production take future generations into consideration, as a form of responsibilityand sharing.

The new Italian design is aiming more and more at a sort of ecology of the artificial. 3CODESIGN_3Rs_Reduce_Recycle_Reuse wants to show that it is possible to have design without waste. This eco-design exhibition promotes Italian design and eco-designers who have chosen to follow the path of fully sustainable design. 3CODESIGN will last three years and is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and curated by Silvana Annichiarico.

Nestart eco-design in exhibition: selected by 3CODESIGN

Nestart has been selected to take part in the “3CODESIGN. 3Rs: reduce, recycle, reuse”, in line with the objectives of the so called “Cura Italia” law decree and within the integrated promotion strategy “Vivere all’italiana” (Living Italian style) aimed at relaunching the Italian economy in the world. Perfectly in line with the culture of recycling promoted by the design exhibition, Nestart creates eternal design objects, made to be able to constantly regenerate and starting from scraps, industrial waste materials that are brought to new life.

Nestart has decided to show its Labo magazine holder at this international exhibition. Labo reverses the traditional production strategy and deconstructs the classic concept of a design newspaper holder. This product is innovative and completely designed following the principles of circular economy.

Along with Nestart, 3CODESIGN will also host pieces of furniture by Sapiens Design. Sapiens Design is an eco-design studio sharing the same vision and ideas of Nestart. Together, Sapiens Design and Nestart are moving towards the objective of complete and shared environmental sustainability. Reduce, recycle, reuse: these are the three core values of both projects. Alongside the Labo magazine holder by Nestart, the exhibition will host the “Intrecci” (intertwining) series by Sapiens Design.

“Intrecci” gathers design elementsderived from a particular fabric processing, the so-called “pezzara” from Calabria and the so-called “pezzotto” from Valtellina. The material becomes a point of connection between distant Italian traditions and territories, the North and the South, and it reworks and transforms the wastes of industrial processes, as also Nestart does. The “Intrecci” series includes small tables and magazine holders in which fabric is the key element. The fabric pieces harmoniously contrast with the metal of the Labo magazine holder.
