A multidisciplinary team of designers, the Allianz UMANA MENTE Foundation, the 5vie Association and the Polo Formativo Legno Arredo Rosario Messina launch the "Furniture for All!" Project to transform places of isolation into theatres of dignity. This project originates from the desire to use design as a tool for inclusive projects, hoping that children should never remain in traditional prisons with their mothers. The goal is to rethink and realize, thanks to the work of social carpentry, a modular furniture system in recycled plastic able to improve the housing conditions of those who, underage or not, are forced to live in contexts of rehab or imprisonment.
