as an official supplier for expo milano 2015fabrica has constructed ‘you make the park’ — a series of outdoor seating — installed within the venue’ piazza dei tigli to adhere with the global event’s mission of exploring sustainable development. beginning with the first principle: that what comes from the earth returns to the earth, the outdoor collection consists approximately of 60 articles ranging from benches, tables stools and to daybeds constructed from 100% recyclable materials.

designed by an international team of creatives, the ‘you make the park’ pieces are rendered from 100% recyclable materials including cork, galestrao terra-cotta and wood.; with no glue used in their assembly. the pieces are clean and simple, and are modular leaving it up to the users to modify their setting as the see fit. by allowing visitors to engage directly with the modules, the exhibition fosters a dynamic democratic and multicultural space which creates a dialogue between individuals and their space.
