Elisa SchillaciYoung Designer between Rome and Palermo, has sent us his concept called Keep Off The Grass, one empties unusual pockets that intrigued us.

"The challenge was to think of a wooden object that would follow the current of" less is more "but, at the same time, to imagine an object that would meet the modern and innovative and eco-friendly mood, conveying with its shape some contents that were also emotional. The Keep Off The Grass design comes from a specific image: the coins and keys scattering out of your pockets once sitting on the grass. In reality, this is a wooden piece of furniture where you can empty your pockets once at home. But I would like to proceed in order.

Let's start with the shape that is actually very and simple: a plane on four legs. But it is not a coffee table, it has much smaller dimensions. It is precisely a cabinet that empties pockets. Its name, Keep Off The Grass is in fact the sign that often appears on English public lawns (also Keep Off The Lawn). I wanted to bring in the outside. Keep Off revises in its form one of the (non-voluntary) processes that make a lawn a public lawn. Objects that spontaneously spread out of the pockets on the grass, coins, keys, cell phones, glasses ... et voilà the story is served! Public / Private and Outdoor / Indoor, it is these pairs of categories that support the semantics of this mysterious object. And since no lawn is a lawn without a flower, the top hosts a hole to accommodate a long stem of glass, a flower vase fed with semiotic (but also real) water where you can soak your shoes as soon as you get home (the tub blue placed at the bottom).
