An Italian villa is used as a teaching ground by Superuse on site to spread circular design tools, methods and thinking to Italian designers, architects, 

contractors and industry.


Thanks to the extension of Harvest Map in Italy over the previous year, the project culminated in waste materials from industries around Milan being up-cycled to design furniture for the 450m2 interior fit-out, which was designed and built on site in four weeks in ‘Furniture Jam Sessions’ with 14 international designers and builders.

The ‘Villa Maggiore’ project led by Superuse on site also used waste materials in the building renovation, minimal remodelling, and passive and zero energy systems to transform the disused villa into zero energy, circular holiday home to showcase circular design in Italy. 

As for music jam sessions, though materials and conditions were supplied there was no pre-defined plan or design.
