Corepla Casetta - Rossana Orlandi

It's Milan Design Week and the Salone del Mobile is in full swing, so the chips are down, who can come up with the most original sustainable installation? Recycling Association Corepla and brilliant architect and designer Rossana Orlandi decide to highlight the plastic waste problem and take it a step further - they offer a solution, upcycling the mixed waste plastics into usable materials.

Corepla fished mixed plastic waste form the River Po, along with post consumer plastic and sent it to Storm Board. We created boards from the waste that replace plywood and mdf commonly used in exhibitions and intallations. With all the advantages of a tough waterproof board Corepla's installation turned an emergency shelter into a Milanese style work of art. Thousands of loacals and visitors to the Via Solferino will wallk through the Storm Board arches this week.

Rossana's team set the boards up in the National Science Museum where it is part of the Guiltless Plastic display. A celebration of designers ideas for the use of waste plastic.
