No Place Like Home
The Third Paradise
This is a story of place. Officina+39 is a product of their hometown of Biella where tradition and innovation happily mingle. As part of the ‘wool route’, Biella has been creating high-end textiles for millennia – craftsmanship is in their blood. And similar to the region’s culinary traditions, Recycrom™ is also built from the simplest ingredients: textile scraps. Biella is also home to Cittadellarte Foundation, founded by Italy’s most famous living artist Michelangelo Pistoletto. Here, scientists, artists and businesses work together on creating sustainable, innovative practices across all aspects of life.
