Without its precious cargo, what good is a wine barrel, you ask? See for yourself. Fashion progeny Angela Missoni and Chiara Ferragamo, along with 30 other designers and architects including Daniel Libeskind, Marc Sadler, and Arnaldo Pomodoro, worked alongside recovering addicts in the San Patrignano Rehabilitation Center in Italy (Europe’s largest drug rehabilitation center) to repurpose wine casks into colorful, uncomplicated items of furniture. Now that’s clean living.
On view May 17-19, Poltrona Frau Showroom, 145 Wooster Street, NYC. Proceeds will go toward the San Patrignano Center.
