Stand at the fairground Salone Satelite 07
Means of saving energy, materials and recourses are becoming more and more important. We don’t have enough space in the city as well as in our houses and apartments but the number of our needs is increasing. Consumer society is swimming in goodies and stuff. That is main idea of the stand – keep our daily needs by refusing unreasonable use of space, materials and resources. – just like V. Caps (inventor of Minox) did in the 30’s when he refused the huge photo camera which could be used only by professionals. Today designers are not only creators of things. They also share responsibility of overproduction and harm to the environment caused by industries. Today’s designer offers his help.
