“From redundant to abudant”.
Presented in Salone del Mobile di Milano 2011 by Peter Botazzi and Denish Bonapace.
Da Morto a Orto is an exhibition of recycled furniture used as planters.
“Da morto a orto” isn’t just a collection of one-off pieces; it is a critical, ironic reinterpretation of everyday objects that we no longer recognise or that are on their last legs: objects and furniture around the house that are destined to disappear, to be “destroyed”, are here resuscitated with a new look.
The pieces are intended to be for indoor kitchen gardens and for classroom horticultural lessons.
