Everyday plastic objects like buckets, tubs, children’s toys, the housings of electric devices – all trash, plastic trash. The designer cuts these items up, cleans them, and rearranges them using grey polyurethane foam to make shelves, lamps and boards in useable furniture.
Massimiliano Adami designs and manufactures objects pioneering the use of materials and he intervenes systematically in construction techniques to achieve unprecedented aesthetic and functional solutions. His pieces are included in important international design galleries and he has carried out projects for many furnishing companies. His Fossili Moderni have been included in the permanent collection of Triennale Design Museum of Milan.
