EXHIBITION IDEA - THE SUPERMARKET DESIGN, "RULLSTOL" project - Superstudio Più (17 - 22 Aprile 2018)
The Rullstol "Rullstol" wheelchair, designed in wood and metal, bears the JVLT signature, which uses purchasing components for the mobile part, in line with the Ikea philosophy, which will be exhibited as part of the collective exhibition IDEA - Il Design Supermarket.
The IDEA project began as a reflection on how in recent decades a new phenomenon has arisen in the furniture sector, with the appearance of large furnishing chains offering a complete line of household items. The curator / creator Niklas Jacob has thus invited 18 designer to reflect on this topic, in an ironic way, creating an IDEA flat-pack and do-it-yourself.
A proposal that, thanks to a contemporary and innovative language, confirms how much design should be for everyone, within everyone's reach and for every day.
RULLSTOL is a furnishing chair with super abilities for people with disabilities.
The project by JoeVelluto (JVLT) is a reflection on the everyday life of a disabled person, very often made of objects that already communicate at the semiotic level diversity, hardness and lack of empathy with the user. Design has a moral and social duty to develop a language of "normality" even for these objects, to be able to enjoy beauty in all its forms!
