THE FURNITURE
JAM SESSIONS
We are our own Guinea pigs..

Building furniture in a cooperative effort, from local waste with four teams of waste architects, artists and carpenters that live together on site for two sessions of two weeks.


We are living at the villa with fourteen people while building the interior for future inhabitants.  And that works amazingly well. It's makes it so much easier to see what you are making in function, every day our rooms get better facilitated. You can see directly what is needed for the client and guests that will live in your room after you.

In the first week we had to set up our space; we made a solar shower, outside kitchen, compost heap, waste separation areas, dining table for 14 and realized that we really miss some shading from the sun at lunch, it's still summer here ;-)
SOLAR SHOWER
Because the showers in the house do not work yet, we made an improvised solar shower...

It's so easy: a metal box sourced from an exhibition, black neoprene cut offs as an insulating heat trap, two silk bobbin reels from the neighboring silk factory, and 50 meters of new hose.


We can all have a hot shower with this set up, one person every half hour from 1100 to 1900. This raises an interesting question; what is more sustainable?

Our improvised shower made from waste running totally on direct sun, or the final solution where we first source electricity with solar panels produced in
Vietnam, a heat pump that warms a 200 liter buffer to 40/60 degrees.  The heat of the water is then boosted to 60 degrees with an instant-heater in our nicely designed bathroom finished with re-used resins, new ceramics and stainless steel taps... Of course the last one will also work 24 hours a day, and in winter...

THE HANGING BEDS by REFUNC
The floors of the second floor are made of reused chip-wood exhibition floors and most likely will have to be redone in a few years. As the ceiling has an open wood beam construction, and we have sourced hundreds of meters of beams we decided to hang the beds/showers/organizers from the ceiling beams.
A first prototype to evaluate the relation between design, materials and space.

THE FIREHOSESCAPE
by CO2RO

We need a lounging landscape for 14 persons and we have endless amounts of firehose available, thus Marco developed a woven firehose cover that can be mounted on a base built with the dead stock sandwich panels that were sourced from the exhibition builder...

Some neoprene under it and we have a super design seat that reminds of us of the cult design couches from the 70's.

THE SKYLINE WARDROBE
by STUDIO CIFRA

Amazing re-use by Davide Rampanelli and Valeria Cifarelli. There were some 30/30 mm metal frames that have been molded into a huge wardrobe with, as detail, integrated runners..

The wardrobe is developing into an organic cube shape landscape that will fit the big ground floor room as the main storage unit for the villa.

BOXED

Boxes and graphic compositions forming clothing cabinets and bedheads for the first floor's bedrooms: look at our master carpenter at work with my son Karaman as his intern.
Work in progress stay tuned for more updates!
