The first exhibition on environmentally sustainable household items.
Bags, toys, lamps, chairs, vases, necklaces, rings, pots, dishes, photo frames, candles and other home accessories are just some of the products featured at Macef Sustainable home: the first exhibition on environmentally sustainable household items, which was held from September 8th to 11th in Milan at MACEF.
The protection of the environment and health within the home has become a necessity.
The exhibition, Macef Sustainable Home, sponsored by Macef and by Arch. Marco Capellini, with this first edition featured more than 80 Italian and foreign products. Each product was accompanied by a sheet that describes the key environmental characteristics in terms of materials and processes.
Even the layout of the exhibition was made entirely of cardboard kubedesign, meeting the sustainable philosophy of the entire Sustainable Home project.
