Project “Barrique”: the ethical and aesthetic value of recovery


Recovery as a value that combines both ethics and aesthetics. This is the concept underpinning “Barrique, the third age of wood”, an Ermenegildo Zegna Group project in collaboration with Comunità di San Patrignano and Letizia Moratti. Launched in 2012, its main aim is the recycling of barrels and recovery of people through the creation of a permanent collection, which now has over 40 design works. Each of them is a one-off piece designed by well known architects and designers made by hand by young people in the San Patrignano Design Lab. The collection has now been enriched by a new work, Baco, which is a stool made entirely out of wooden barrel staves. The inspiration behind it is the rounded form of silk worms. It creates a fascinating play of color, with contrasts between the purple color inside and the pale oak outside. The work was designed by the internationally renowned Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola, who has thus joined a long list of notable names associated with the project, such as Karim Rashid, Alessandro Mendini, Michele De Lucchi, Carlo Colombo, Daniel Libeskind, Aldo Cibic and Mario Botta. Baco was presented in Ermenegildo Zegna’s Global Store in via Montenapoleone in Milan on Monday 13 April and will be on display there during the week of the 2015 Salone del Mobile (Furniture Expo) and for the whole of april. It can then be purchased online at the Spazio Sanpa website. This is a new development in the fruitful collaboration between Ermenegildo Zegna Group and Comunità di San Patrignano which, by means of the “Course in textile handicraft and skills for weaving operators” supported by Fondazione Zegna, has been enabling girls in the Community’s textile workshop to learn textile production and processing techniques for three years now. The course will also help them find jobs afterwards. Discover the “Course in textile handicraft and skills for weaving operators” funded by Fondazione Zegna
