Rilegno - which has been pursuing its mission in the recovery and re-use of wood for years - is the spokesman for an exciting experience telling the story of a material which never loses its value whether it is transformed into a design object or a semi-worked product for the décor or building industries.
Edited by Irene Ivoi the book is a profoundly evocative wood journey by image and product in which wood re-use is much more than a successful exercise in creativity. It is design, innovation and self-aware action in support not only of a historic material but also of an economy which is building its future on the practical - and not just theoretical – foundation of sustainability.
RICRE-AZIONI is also a synthesis of the commitment with which Rilegno has sponsored design initiatives and experimentation opportunities over the years such as the highly successful wood waste re-use ideas and proposals competition Legno d'Ingegno. And the more recent LegnoeRilegno initiative with its exciting public workshops publicised on digital communication media by participants themselves - see Instagram. It is a way of building up a relationship with the local area and raising awareness of the wood re-use cycle which many still know nothing about - and much more. It is a two pronged initiative of great importance - proposing projects and raising awareness.
