Within a few hours we will participate to REGENERATION, an event that has a lot in common with our brand of regenerated yarn, ECONYL®.
The REGENERATION 2016 conference will take place near our headquarter in Italy, in the Trentino region. It is a 64-hours European design competition organized by Macro Design Studio in collaboration with the International Living Future and the Living Building Challenge Collaborative: Italy. This competition is entirely based on the Living Building Challenge (LBC) protocol and will feature three teams of young professionals from all over Europe competing to develop a project of sustainable re-qualification of an existing public building, following the Living Building Challenge Standards, version 3.0. The designers will only have 2 days to finish their projects.
Our ECONYL® yarn, used in the Net-Works™ collection of carpet tiles by Interface, will be one of the design elements that will be included in the sustainable requalification project. We will also have the chance to present ECONYL® and its environmental benefits connected to its use at a short talk we will have with the participants on Friday evening.
On Saturday, the closing event of this competition will be a conference on “Living Future Made of Living Building” with international speakers such as Amanda Sturgeon, Martina Brown and Emanuele Naboni.
We will be there so stay tuned for more news.
