One Works presents “WAVES”, the urgency of a new project for the world

For this year’s Milan Design Week, One Works is pleased to present a unique installation, conceived by Francesca Benedetto and created in collaboration with Violaine Bue, to launch "(f) Acts on Climate Change" - a cycle of initiatives promoted by One Works and curated by environmental journalist Daniele Moretti, that explore and stimulate discussion on the importance of a new project for the world.

Global architecture and engineering firm, One Works, is pleased to present "WAVES" – an installation designed to take over the One Works Creative Hub at Via Sciesa 3, in Milan. The installation will introduce a cycle of exciting initiatives entitled "(f) Acts on Climate Change" also animating the space in the coming months. A series of meetings, discussions, screenings, installations and debates led by personalities with different backgrounds, as selected by environmental journalist Daniele Moretti, will stimulate a year-round think tank on the changes generated by climate change, calling for each person to take responsibility and make small interventions in their daily life, work life, and in their habits.


Expressing commitment to a new project for the world, One Works wished to provide a strong statement during on the most important Design events of the year, with a symbolic installation. Curated by Francesca Benedetto, Design Critic at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and founder of the YellowOffice studio, and in collaboration with Violaine Buet, seaweed designer and member of the Department of Seaweed (a transdisciplinary and international platform for algae research as a resource Sustainable) "WAVES" will physically transport visitors through a series of waves at increasing heights made of seaweed, expressing a tangible experience of climate change in progress.
