15 DAYS AT MANGILI’S PLACE

 

If you feel you are not done with a project, work on it! In order to materialize my ideas

I took out again the sewing machine and the fabric. During 15 Days the bag has changed. The concept was the same but the new bag prototypes got more inclusive than the original one. This Project shows that inclusion can be reached considering the specific needs and abilities of a minority.

From a minority to a majority that’s the Trasportaprojekt.

TRASPORTA

For the life on wheels

 

Disability and the specific needs can inspire new products. Trasporta is a accessoire for wheelchair users inspired by wheelchair users. It is composed of a leather tray and a synthetic fabric bag, that can be used together or separately to store and carry around personal items or shopping. Trasporta can be placed on the lap, attached to the wheelchair or held like a tote bag.

LIGNEA

 

Stack, Join and pull…

The construction of this Bench prototype is inspired from a woodpile.Timber battens separate the stacked plywood boards from each other. The construction is fixed at both ends with a steel rope and spread out with wedges.This allows the deformation of the wood boards and gain tension.The result is a wavy wood bench that can vary by shifting the wedges.

Stack, Join and pull are three actions 

that show timber flexibility in this Object.

This Stool is made out off cardboard paper rolls. They are connected to each other by belts cut out from the rolls itself. The resulting chain of rolls, wrap around each other forming a stool.

The stool is made and fixed using only cardboard paper.

CIOTOLINE

 

An industrial made plastic jar has been wrapped with three different materials and afterwards cast to obtain a mould. The manner to wrap the plastic jar with paper, raffia and textile forms haptic qualities to the muould's shape and make them unique. Each bowl is different from the others, even if formally related to the original container used at the beginning.

GIOCHI DI CARTA

 

Playing with plant pigments and laser cut to realize colored file folder and pencil cases was the intention of this work. The objects are cut out and folded from one piece of cardboard paper and held together without tape or glue. Patterns and colors of the beetroot pigment meet laser cut geometry.
