WETUBE

Turin, Italy
2008

Design

The project is an open-source installation in the Arrivore Park in Turin and it is part of Geodesign – an international competition organized by the “Turin World Design Capital 2008” initiative.

WeTube is an irregular structure made of corten steel cylinders that ca be filled with items like plants, wooden seat, recycling bins or barbeque grills. The project will grow with time, as a living plant rooted in the park. WeTube was developed in collaboration with Brazialian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana, participation consultant Elena Caffarena and students from local Turinese schools. The exhibition’s prototype was built by Extravega.
