The project evergreen was born from the careful observation of the widespread Down syndrome and from the particular effect that transforms normal human beings into extremely special people, into “evergreen” boys and girls: souls too big to remain contained in a normal human body. Luca Scarpellini e Ilaria Innocenti they meet again after the success of the Fuorisalone in Milan in 2010 to create a new line of objects for the home and office, different from the previous one, more profound, linked to an optimistic vision of life. With the new products of the evergreen line, Ilaria Innocenti and Luca Scarpellini undertake a study of the phenomenon, deepening it by creating design objects that contain two opposite worlds within them. Just like in children with Down syndrome, for whom there is a different evolution of body and soul, the content and container of these new products come from two opposing categories.
"With this line we have tried to create objects whose new functionality was the exact opposite of that of the original object - say the two designers - and we are working to constantly enrich the evergreen catalog with new, fun and meaningful products".
Blackboards bright that force us to write by hand on the old digital monitor of a computer, coffee cups and impossible to fill because transformed into audio systems and office estimated magazines that become fun puzzles for our children are just some of the products evergreen signed useDesign and ilaria.i.
