Description

The stool is part of the Carpet Matter collection, realized using carpet waste and off-cuts collected from events and temporary sets. Because carpet is a composite product that was never designed for disassembly, there is only a small amount of carpet waste that is being fully recycled in a closed-loop system. Unfortunately, the rest of it is sent to incinerators or deposited in landfills.

Nowadays carpet is made mainly with synthetic materials like Nylon and Polypropylene both thermoplastic materials. Through hands-on experimentation and material research into synthetic materials, working as an alchemist with ingenuity and persistence, I have developed a technique that allows me to reshape and repurpose this material for the creation of new design artifacts, thus avoiding carpets ending up in dumpsites.

Materials: wood structure and hand-dyed synthetic carpet waste.

About Riccardo Cenedella Visit Showroom →

Cenedella's work is inspired by a fascination with materials experimentation, exploring how contemporary society's waste can be transformed into functional objects. He developed this design method while studying MA Material Futures at Central Saint Martins in London. In this period, he started taking a low-tech approach to design, influenced by the theories of the French philosopher Claude Levi-Strauss about the "bricoleur" described in one of his most important works (The Savage Mind, 1962). Riccardo Cenedella lives and works in Turin. He works with both private and public clients. His pieces have been exhibited at Collectible in Bruxelles, SWING Design Gallery in Benevento, EDIT Napoli, the London Design Festival, the Milan Design Week, the Affordable Art Fair London, and the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. In addition to working as an independent designer, he is a university professor at IAAD in Turin (Institute of Applied Art and Design) where he teaches Product Life Cycle Assessment.
