During the Tortona Design Week I came across a nice upcycle project. Finally some upcycle design after seeing so much [sometimes too much] ‘regular’ design. It’s almost like finding that needle in the haystack. And when you find it you’re sooo glad. And that’s exactly what happened when I saw ‘BARREL‘ by Francesca Cutini | Barrel12, based in Milan | Italy. A brilliant idea with so many possibilities.

BARREL is a design project based on the desire to use recycled materials to create design objects for indoor and outdoor use. Old industrial upcycled iron barrels become a library on wheels, container, pouf or pots/vases for outdoor use. You can close them with a simple click and store bottles, books or all sorts of things in them.

Francesca Cutini works with oil-related objects and retrieves, reinvents and cuts to finally turn them into an ambitious design project. “The idea of a standardized design and technology was deliberately abandoned to start a new realtionship with sustainability and craftmanship, in order to give a character of originality and uniqueness. All the objects are fully customizable in colors an finishing. Each piece in the collection is mounted on wheels and easy to move around.”
