“Design for communities” is the result of a collaboration with LiveinSlums, an NGO working in highly critical urban areas. They dsecided to involve us to travel to Mathare to make prototypes of the furniture intended for the dining hall and dormitory of a local school together with locals. A design logic based on production simplificatio was triggered through a formal synthesis in which everything superfluous or decorative is eliminated. The construction system ensures structural stability through sequential joints between the various components and can be applied to different types of furniture. To tell the public about the project, Assab One hosted an exhibition during Milan Design Week 2023 in which the furniture were displayed along with an immersive photo installation featuring shots by Francesco Giusti, Filippo Romano, Mattia Zoppellaro and Alessandro Treves.
