Recyclable Planet is an intriguing eco-design exhibition promoted by the innovative brand Origami Furniture, specialising in the manufacture of eco-friendly furniture. Set in the heart of Milan, this captivating temporary exhibition-gallery hosts the latest recycled cardboard creations designed by architect Giancarlo Zema. Protected by the sinuous lines of an imaginary “eco planet” are the Canyon Collection and Snake Collection: the former is inspired by the sculpted and infinite stratifications of America’s Grand Canyon, comprising chairs, a coffee table and floor lamp; the Snake Collection is inspired by the sinuous silhouette of a playfully coloured serpent, comprising a dual-coloured cardboard chair and desk.
