“Let’s imagine that each of us has a box ( = a volume) where he/she can put his/her belongings. Everything that is bigger than the box, like cars, is shared. This would bring us to reflect and think hard about what we exactly need and what not before taking it with us. Do you really need 20 pairs of shoes? Or is it smarter to have two pair of shoes and some food? As a student abroad I see with how little I can live with, with how little I can be happy. What would happen to the economy and to production if we could just own so little? Will we start to produce smaller things, using less material? And let’s say we would lose the volume of things we throw away, would we build more lasting and durable products?”

Vicky was born in Italy from German father and Italo-belgium mother. She graduated in September 2013 at the Politecnico di Torino with the project “Wood-cycle” in collaboration with the Cooperativa “Il Cammino” – Biella, and was honored with Cum Laude. Now she is following the Master in Social Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven. She loves the Nature, especially the rivers, and the differences; her projects reflect this love working around the concepts of respect and acceptance of our planet and of the people within the society.
