Foo Reuse Design
Foo Reuse Design extends the very short life of disposable items by turning them into lampshades. We started producing them in Rome in 2019 with refugees and asylum seekers thanks to an inclusion and social design project of the Cultural Association Linaria. While recycling we reduce pollution and stimulate more conscious consumption. The lampshades are washable and suitable for indoor and outdoor. We use design to rebalance our relationship with nature by creating useful and cheerful objects.
