German designers Ett La Benn show the vases made of biodegradable cellulose as part of Poetry Happens at Ventura Lambrate in Milan this week. Called Kami, the pots are molded by hand and left to air-dry.

The ‘kami’ collection of pots/vases/home lighting encourage a new way of thinking in eco-friendly lifestyle products. Made from 100% biodegradable cellulose, an enormously solid and light material, ‘kami’ transforms this most abundant natural raw material into objects for daily use by simple air drying.

Charles Bukowski: ‘Poetry is what happens when nothing else can.’

Design as a creative discipline always floats between pure culture and an applied profession that fulfills industrial needs. This exhibition project emphasizes the experimental ‘making’-oriented cultural path of design. As every year, Milan is the best place to showcase these new concepts and researches. The exhibition POETRY HAPPENS displays authentic, archetypal projects, prototypes and installations with a narrative design quality. Poetry as a headline gives every invited designer, architect and artist the freedom of his / her personal approach and interpretation of his / her work related to poetry.

Ett La Benn transforms innovative ideas into reality. Founded in 2007 and managed by Oliver Bischoff and Danilo Durler Ett La Benn’s primary duties are divided in three business divisions: furniture design, brand architecture and consulting for foodmarket and retails concepts.
