Porta Palazzo market with its 51 300 m² is the largest market in Europe offering all kinds of goods from food to clothes and home utensils giving jobs and the possibility to sustain themselves to thousands of people. At around 2 pm, however, when the stalls start to pack down a huge amount of leftovers are left there, whit no differentiation in materials which makes it impossible to recycle them. Living and working close to this market I feel a sort of appartenance to it and it started to inspire and stimulate me.
For this project, I decided to focus on cardboard and paper waste. Cardboard is soaked in water and mixed with gypsum and PVA glue creating a malleable material, this material is hand dyed and applied to a structure made with wood and metal mesh. Once the material is dry the artwork is sanded and finished with wax, the outcome is a sculptural piece characterised by a stone-like texture.

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.
