From 27 May to 2 July 2021, the spaces of the Chapel of the Italian Cultural Institute of Prague will house the exhibition ‘3CODESIGN: 3 Rs – Reduce, Recycle, Reuse‘ , curated by Silvana Annicchiarico.

The exhibition features a new approach to the creation of design objects from unusual natural materials that are recyclable, reusable and shareable. This tells the story of the profound re-thinking of Italian projects in terms of the production models of industrial design, starting with what is perhaps the greatest ethical challenge of the future: sustainability, and how this reflects on creative practices.

The products in the exhibition are made by young emerging and internationally renowned designers, including Massimiliano Fuksas, Enzo Mari, Philippe Starck and Salvatore Ferragamo.

The exhibition, organized by the Italian Cultural Institute of Prague, in collaboration with the Italian Embassy in Prague and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, is part of the initiatives for the 26th Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Climate Change (COP26), with the presidency shared this year by Italy and the UK.

On the occasion of the 2021 edition of the Italian Design Day, the Italian Cultural Institute organizes also an online conversation between Silvana Annicchiarico, curator of the exhibition, and Jana Zielinski, President of Designblok, the most important event dedicated to design in the Czech Republic. Central to the conversation is the need for waste to return to being raw materials, the importance of placing recycling and reuse at the basis of a circular economy. But looking to the future means rethinking design and production as a function of a new sociability based on sharing, responsibility and respect for future generations. The conversation is online, here, on italiana and on the Institute YouTube’s channel.

Local media partners include Designblok – Prague International Design Festival, Design Mag and Artalk.
