3CODESIGN 3Rs: Reduce Recycle Reuse

The Embassy of Italy and Italian Cultural Institute in Washington, under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, present the exhibition 3CODESIGN | 3Rs: Reduce Recycle Reuse, dedicated to the relationship between design and sustainability.

Curated by architect Silvana Annicchiarico, the exhibition aims to offer an inevitably concise yet sufficiently paradigmatic overview on how Italian design is working in the direction of environmental sustainability. The exposition proposes a selection of objects, products and accessories that are either recycled or made of sustainable materials and with sustainable technologies, all designed by Italian designers and produced by Italian companies. The exhibition is commissioned by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and has been presented in Dubai, China and throughout Europe. 

Ensuring that waste is re-converted to raw material. Placing recycling and reuse at the basis of a circular economy. Rethinking design and production based not only on environmental sustainability but also on a new sociability based on sharing, responsibility and respect for future generations. ~ Silvana Annicchiarico, Curator

These are some of the suggestive traits of an increasingly marked trend in the latest Italian design that goes by the name of Ecodesign and whose primary objective is to contribute to the creation of a new ecology of the artificial. 3CODESIGN features three sections: one dedicated to Recycle, one to Reuse and one to Reduce, the three “Rs” of the new circular economy. According to the new environmental sustainability needs, the new objects mark a real turnaround in trend compared to the production methods and design strategies applied during the 1900s. It is a new model that translates into reviewing all design and production stages, immediately bringing to mind objects and products that are repairable, reconditionable, reusable, shareable, recyclable. Rather than ending up in landfills, the value of an object must remain in circulation and continuously regenerate itself.
